 Celebrate Early Texas 



Our field trip education guides help you, the educator, connect our field trips to the classroom.

We host two field trips a year:

Stephen F. Austin's birthday on November 1st
Texas Independence Day on March 6th

These hands-on field trips connect students to early Texas, bringing both Mexican Texas and the Republic period to life through a series of demonstrations and activities.

Field trips are aligned to both 4th and 7th grade TEKS standards, with optional classroom activities. These activities include lessons that integrate science, art, and historical inquiry into the classroom. 

4th Grade TEKS

7th Grade TEKS 

Within the guide you'll find instruction, maps,and activities to help prepare your students for a fun and informational field trip to our park. 

All events are free, but space is limited.

Reservations must be made at least two weeks before each field trip.
