Description

When a field trip is out of the question, bring the museum to you! The National Women’s History Museum is offering 45 minute electronic field trips for 4th through 11th grade classes, non-profit organizations, corporations, extracurricular groups (and more!) on a variety of topics this fall. Interact with a Museum Educator through field trips that are streamed directly into your classroom using the Zoom video platform, and offer your students a glimpse into how museums bring history to life. All sessions last one class period and include pre-and post-program curriculum materials.

Your classroom will need to have the Zoom platform downloaded and accessible prior to the start of the electronic field trip. You will receive any relevant pre-field trip materials one week prior to the scheduled field trip, along with the link to the virtual classroom where the field trip will take place. Field trips must be booked two weeks in advance.

Cancelations made 7 business days prior to a field trip will receive a full refund; cancelations made fewer than 7 business days will forfeit 30% of the cost of the program.


Prices:

  • $125 – private schools, youth organizations, homeschool associations, clubs, corporations, & non-profits
  • $100 – public schools
  • No Charge – Title I schools (contact us to verify status as a Title I school and to schedule the field trip)

Standing Up for Change: African American Women and the Civil Rights Movement

In the 20th century, African American women formed the backbone of the modern Civil Rights Movement. They were the critical mass, the grassroots leaders challenging America to embrace justice and equality for all. This program discusses women’s critical roles in the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Little Rock’s Central High School integration, and the little-known women behind the scenes of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Join us to explore the Civil Rights Movement through the perspectives of its women leaders.


Taking a Stand Part 1: The Beginnings of Woman Suffrage (1776-1872)

Though the woman suffrage movement started in 1848, the movement had roots going back to the beginning of the country. This program will explore the early factors in the suffrage movement including key women such as Abigail Adams, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, and Susan B. Anthony. Learn about the beginnings of the women's rights movement in the United States and the legislation that was put in place to halt the movement.

Taking a Stand Part 2: Woman Suffrage and Protest at the White House (1872-1920)

By the early 20th century women had yet to achieve the vote nationally. A group of women, adopting radical tactics from their British counterparts, brought their protests to Washington, DC and the White House fence. Learn how Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, and the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) drew public attention to their cause and became a model for peaceful public protest marches in the United States.
