Copper TRACES is a very valuable, educational program. Students get to visit a historical site and participate in hands-on activities to directly involve them in the program. My students were completely engaged during the lessons and recalled a lot of information from their sessions. The rap song was sung all the way home! :)
A phenomenal event. In my 30 years of teaching, this is the best field trip ever! I think the organizers deserve national recognition due to the caliber of this event.
This program is an excellent opportunity for both students and educators to learn and participate in hands-on activities. I know that my students and I have an absolute blast. I would recommend it to any fourth grade teacher who had not yet heard about it or was unsure whether they wanted to participate. Both my students and I learned a lot that we had not known before attending. Thank you very much for the opportunity.
