Why Take A Peralta Hacienda School Field Trip?
School field trips at Peralta Hacienda Historical Park are intended to offer experiences too big for the classroom. Every element of the trips ties into social studies curriculum, and uses hands-on activities to excite curiosity in students. Field trips at Peralta Hacienda receive consistently stellar reviews from Bay Area teachers.
What Are They About?
Peralta Hacienda offers two highly acclaimed Hands-on History Trips. Ohlone Daily Life focuses on the first peoples of Northern California, while Peralta Rancho Life immerses students in the later Mission and Rancho periods. The tours are focused on 3rd and 4th grade curriculums, respectively, but students from 3rd grade to middle school can enjoy either. Come for one, and you'll want to come back for the other!
