Mrs. Massengill from Lincoln Park MI is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Journey Through Time at Greenfield Village

My students need the admission fee to go to Greenfield Village. This field trip will enhance the lessons they have been learning in the classroom.

My Students

In our class and our school, we have a diverse population in ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and academic ability. Many students of low income households receive free breakfast and lunch during both the school year and throughout the summer months. Approximately half of our students are English Language Learners.

Students in our class look forward to all the new things they will be learning in third grade.

They come excited and ready for new experiences. While they are eager to learn, funding, especially for experiences outside of the classroom, is limited.

My Project

With limited life experiences and limited funding in school, our students often miss out on new and exciting experiences. A visit to Greenfield Village will help our students make connections between life today and how life used to be.

Our students will be highly engaged in seeing what they have learned in school come to life in front of them.

Seeing all of the antiquities in person, as well as the demonstrations and inventions of past generations that they have studied, will enhance the education they have received within the school walls and bring about a better understanding of our history.
