Join Me for a Virtual Field Trip to the Museum of the American Revolution

Lauren Tarshis

Hi teachers,


As I work on my Scope articles and I Survived books, I'm always wishing that I could bring your students along with me on my research journeys. And finally my dream is coming true.

I am writing to you to invite you and your students to join me on a virtual field trip to the Museum of the American Revolution, an amazing new museum in Philadelphia.

The virtual field trip, called "Beyond the Battlefield," is a 30-minute video extravaganza in which I take students (and teachers!) behind the scenes of the museum.

They will delve into the background of the Revolution and War of Independence. They will see historical treasures. They will meet historians and hear stories of young people—like them—who were a part of America's fight for freedom.

Our goal is to bring this exciting and frightening time in history to life for your students, to supplement your curriculum, and to open new doors of curiosity.

The video pairs perfectly with my upcoming March Scope article “Blood, Smoke, and Freedom” (coming to your classroom in a few weeks!) It’s also a great companion to my book, I Survived the American Revolution, 1776.

The virtual field trip will be available for streaming starting on Wednesday, February 7, 2018.

Click here to register and you’ll receive a downloadable virtual field trip classroom kit and helpful reminders via email.

I can’t wait to hear what you think. For more resources for teaching the American Revolution, don't miss this fantastic post by Scope advisor and Scholastic Top Teaching blogger Mary Blow!

Huzzah! (That’s how they said “hooray!” in colonial times.)
