Walk Through Presentations

What is a Walk Through?

A Walk Through is an engaging and interactive educational presentation of standards-based history curriculum through literacy and the arts.  Many consider the 2 ½ hour experience to be an unforgettable “in-school field trip.”  The program is facilitated by an animated and trained presenter whom guides up to 36 students through historical events using dynamic, kid-friendly stories and activities.  Games, music, and dramatic activities encourage participation and comprehension of the curriculum.  In teams, students compete in a friendly contest to earn points.  Points are awarded mainly for the students’ presentations of pre-assigned cards.  The Expert Word Cards allow students the chance to become an “expert” on vocabulary pertaining to curriculum.  Student may also be assigned Character Cards in which they dramatically portray important historical figures.  The winning team members will each receive a first-place certificate, and each student from the other teams will be awarded a special Walk Through participation certificate. Our in-school “field trips” allow schools to work within their budget and schedule.
