Students will be immersed in our city’s past as they practice their map-reading skills to lead us to the treasure at the end of the tour! We will look at why people lived near this river, how people used this land and how daily life has changed over time.

A Moment in Time
Just as Middle School is a transitional time in a child’s life, the 19th century saw much change in our city and beyond. This field trip focuses on these changes: what happened, why it happened and how it impacted life for New Orleanians. By focusing on our city, we’re able to view our country’s history on a more personal level.
Students will learn about controversial characters from our past, debate the pros, cons and contradictions in our country’s development and compare the changes in technology then to the changes happening today.
This interactive, hands on field trip invites students to think critically about the past while introducing them to gross and bizarre artifacts, images and anecdotes from the past. They won’t want to miss this moment in time!
