Destination Attractions and Educational Resources
Our country is rich in history and culture. Students who are fortunate enough to travel with their class are rewarded with extraordinary experiences.
Students who walk in the footsteps of our founding fathers, spend an afternoon at the Smithsonian Institution's world famous museums, perform before a live audience, or swim with dolphins become more enlightened individuals.
Each day on a Student Adventure's educational tour will be one that expands young minds and inspires students to yearn for more knowledge. Best of all, the kids are having so much fun with their teachers and their friends that they don't even realize the powerful lessons they are receiving.
This resource area of our website helps educators learn more about the attractions on their itinerary and provides an opportunity for them to incorporate additional educational material before, during or after the tour.
Teachers can visit each attraction's website by clicking on the name, and many of the sites also have a section for Educational Resources.
We hope you find these pages useful. Your feedback and ideas for additional links are encouraged.
