Each year The Learning Centers works with educators to develop curriculum for the educational exhibits included in the FairKids Field Trip Program. The curriculum is designed to be easily incorporated into daily classroom lessons and includes pre-visit, on-site and post-visit activities that align with grade level standards. Utilizing this curriculum creates an enhanced educational value for teachers and students who participate in the FairKids Field Trips.
