Plan A Field Trip

We would like to assist you and your students in having an enjoyable experience that you can appreciate and understand in the context of your curriculum.

At the same time, please remember that Casa Grande Ruins National Monument is an archeological site and NOT a recreational area. We are entrusted with protecting and preserving the cultural and natural resources at Casa Grande Ruins and providing opportunities for other visitors to enjoy and experience the Monument. Children, as well as all visitors, are expected to conduct themselves with respect for the fragile ruins and for other visitors.


Things to consider...

Here are a few questions to help you assess whether a visit to the Monument will be beneficial to your students.

  1. How will your visit to Casa Grande Ruins supplement your classroom curriculum?
  2. What area would you like to focus on when visiting? (Archeology, Prehistoric cultures, Sonoran Desert, Arizona history, etc.)
  3. What activities do you have for the students to work on before and/or during their visit?
  4. Will you have a post-visit evaluation for your students? (Writing assignment, quiz, art project)
  5. What are your expectations, goals and/or objectives?
