Binion Elementary fourth-graders travel to San Antonio and Austin on an Education in Action Discover Texas Field Trip

 

Fourth-graders from Birdville ISD’s Binion Elementary traveled to San Antonio and Austin on an Education in Action Discover Texas Field Trip May 25, 2018, to experience what they are learning in fourth grade Texas History. Students visited The Alamo, the Battle for Texas: The Experience Museum, and the Texas State Capitol.

 

During the charter bus ride to Austin, students discussed why Texans are so proud of their unique heritage and participated in activities and games in preparation for their visit. In San Antonio, students toured The Alamo, one of the most famous missions in the United States, and learned about the Battle of the Alamo’s role in the Texas Revolution. At the Battle for Texas: The Experience Museum, students explored exhibits about Texas’s earliest inhabitants and explorers, the Texas Revolution, and events that created our Lone Star identity. In Austin, the students visited the Texas State Capitol where their legislators, The Honorable Kelly Hancock, State Senator, District 9 and The Honorable Stephanie Klick, State Representative, District 91, have their office. Students saw first-hand where Texas laws are made as they toured the State Capitol including the Senate and House of Representatives chambers.

 

“Education in Action’s Discover Texas Field Trips are based on the understanding that the most effective way for students to learn is through experience,” stated Lacey Phillips, Discover Texas Field Trips Director. “Student activities during the Discover Texas Field Trip to Austin reinforce and supplement fourth grade Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) learning objectives with a focus on why Texans are so proud of their unique heritage.”

 

Education in Action’s Discover Texas Field Trips make it easy for teachers to take their third-, fourth-, or fifth-grade classrooms on organized, fun, and educational site-based learning experiences. Discover Texas Field Trip staff members handle all details, including round-trip charter bus transportation, reservations, and TEKS-based program curriculum, so participating teachers can focus on their students and making connections between the experience and what students are learning in the classroom.

 

In addition to Discover Texas Field Trips to San Antonio, Austin, Waco/Georgetown, Dallas, and Fort Worth, Education in Action also offers summer Lone Star Leadership Academy camps for outstanding 4th-8th graders. During the weeklong, overnight camps, participants experience significant Texas sites in Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin/San Antonio, or Houston/Galveston with Texas educators and a focus on leadership.

 

Discover Texas Field Trips are presented by Education in Action, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fostering educated and involved young people. For more information about Education in Action visit www.educationinaction.org and www.facebook.com/educationinaction.
