The Time and the Valleys Museum provides two interactive field trips to immerse students in the importance of water to all life, and the history of how water has changed both the environment and our culture over thousands of years.
Guided by trained Museum educators, students handle million year old fossils and Native American artifacts, build tunnels, visit an outdoor 1930s farm with a farm house, barn, milk house and working waterwheel, experience an interactive exhibition on NYC’s water supply system, and more.
Each of the 2 ½ hour programs provide in-depth information in fun and exciting ways to stimulates student’s learning. Comprehensive pre-visit information packets and fun activity sheets are also included.
The programs are available year round, Tuesday through Friday, for 2nd to 12th grade students (minimum of 15/ maximum of 100 students per day). The cost is $5 per student, ($4 for Sullivan County Schools) with teachers and chaperones free. Title 1 Sullivan County Schools have free admission, with funding through the Make a Difference Grant from the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan.
The Time and the Valleys Museum is located on St. Rt. 55 in Grahamsville, Sullivan County. For more information on the Museum’s field trips, visit their website. For questions or to book a field trip, call (845) 985-7700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
