2015 school trips at the American Museum

Date Posted: 03/12/2014

The American Museum in Britain is now taking school trip bookings for 2015 in the subjects of History and Geography, and Textiles and Design.

The Bath-based museum’s schools programme takes the form of a series of workshops, led by a dedicated learning team. Artefacts and documents are at the heart of all sessions and every trip is tailored around the National Curriculum.

The American Museum offers workshops for all Key Stages – from Key Stage 1 to A-Level, and bespoke programmes can also be developed.

Some of the highlights of the education programme for 2015 include the Native Americans: As Varied as the Land sessions, which teach about the diversity of Native American peoples and how tribes adapted to their environments in the past.

England and the Colonisation of America and The American West are other big draws for the Key Stage 1 to 3 age range.

For GCSE students, meanwhile, there is Understanding Slavery, which uses objects to uncover the experiences of enslaved people, and the forms of resistance they undertook in the United States.
