What is a Field Trip in a Box?

Valuable information can be gained from visiting museums and participating in their activities, but sometimes it is not possible to visit the actual museum site. In those instances we have decided to bring the museum to you! The U.S. Navy Museum Field Trip in a Box series is designed to provide a virtual museum experience. The information and activities presented in a Field Trip in a Box are the same as the tours given at the museum.

Every program in the Field Trip in a Box series comes complete with: A teacher's curriculum guide, photo cards, hands-on components and craft materials. Teachers will need to provide basic elements such as markers and glue. Participation in a Field Trip in a Box program is free, except for return postage.
