Help Us Take a Trip to the Museum of the City of New York!

My students need a guided tour of the Museum of the City of New York.

I teach first grade in the Bronx and I am in charge of planning trips for all four classes in our grade. I love to take trips around New York City because I find that many of our students have not been to many of the great museums and places the city has to offer.

I would like to take a guided tour of the Museum of the City of New York. The children will get to learn what childhood was like in New York City over the past 150 years. They will get to look at old paintings, photographs and toys. Then, they will create a mural of their own New York City childhood.

The only problem is that this trip is expensive. Many times, families cannot afford to pay for the trip and teachers wind up paying for students themselves. Or, we just don't get to take exciting trips at all!

If funded, I can promise you 85 ecstatic first graders will have a wonderful trip to a Museum that they might not otherwise get to visit.
