We’re on a scavenger hunt for Long Beach history, starting with the Long Beach Pike and how it evolved over time. Students are encouraged to ask their parents and grandparents if they have memories of the Long Beach Pike before coming and bring photos to share. We will share those memories and talk about the rides and entertainment on the Long Beach Pike. Together we will craft a memory and/or make observations about the businesses on the pier, then share it on the living history site: http://www.longbeachinabox.com.
Field trips may be booked for 15 – 37 students at a time. The price is $10 per student.
Classes of more than 20 may be divided into two groups. One group will perform measurement andgather photos and information while the second group works in Shoreline Village’s Brickersville studio.
Teachers are asked to provide adult support in the ratio of 1:6 for students up to 8 years old, and 1:8 for students 8 and over. Adults will be provided with instructions for a specific task. For scheduling, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Trish at 562-225-9589.
We are also able to arrange for a harbor tour and a snack or lunch at one of Shoreline Village’s family-friendly restaurants: Tugboat Pete’s (hot dogs, Best hamburgers ever!); Gilan Pizza and Grill; Twisters and Coffee (awesome pretzels!); The Funnel House (cookies and funnel cakes); Ice Cream on the Boardwalk; Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Sugar Daddy’s sweet shop.
Students are introduced to our progressive S.T.E.A.M. learning projects.
