School Tour – Grades K through 5
How did people live in the past? How were their day-to-day lives different from ours, and how were they the same? We will compare and contrast how people dressed, how they traveled, and how they used resources. In addition to time in the History Museum, students will take a guided walk through the former Sacramento Valley Railroad yards to The Square, where they will see a live blacksmith demonstration and participate in hands-on gold panning.
Program Length: 2 Hours
Cost: $10 per student, $6 per adult, 40 students maximum
