Help us fund this free program for kids.
The presentations are designed to:
- Support specific student outcomes. For example, they can help students to:
- Identify the location of US cities and/or states on a US map.
- Understand and apply cardinal directions.
- Connect US geography with important historical events.
- Create a fun, entertaining experience. Many of the presentations involve guided imagery, which activates students’ imagination by transporting them to different places in the past, present, or future across the US.
- Encourage students to learn more about people, places, and key events in this country.
Who delivers the presentations? How are they delivered?
