PINELLAS COUNTY APPROVED FIELD TRIPS
Compliment your curriculum and enhance your student’s learning experience by brining your students on an approved Pinellas County Field Trip at the Armed Forces History Museum. A comprehensive learning experience has been developed by AFHM with the support of the Pinellas County Schools Social Studies Department.
While at the museum, students will participate in a multi-media educational experience, including descriptive displays, photographs, videos and lifelike dioramas. Curriculum covered includes - but is not limited to – history, geography, art, reading and mathematics. Authentic military artifacts cover military conflicts from WW1 through the current conflicts in the Middle East. All field trips include a guided tour, museum scavenger hunt and letters to overseas troops. Tours are suitable for all ages and take approximately one hour.
To prepare and enhance your students’ experience, a comprehensive Teacher Lesson Preview – which includes the Florida State Standards – has been approved by the Pinellas County Social Studies Department and is available online free of charge.
Your class may eat lunch in our Officers’ Club at no extra charge if the students (or school) provide the meal.
