Upcoming Distance Learning opportunity! Celebrate President’s Month and Lincoln’s Birthday with Ford’s education staff, the National Park Service and classrooms from around the country! From the Civil War to Civil Rights to today, Ford’s Theatre and the Lincoln Memorial have served as stages from which we celebrate President Lincoln and the things that mattered to him: unity, creativity and the right to rise. Each interactive, virtual event will last approximately 45 minutes. For more information and registration links please visit Ford's Theatre website.

Experience National Mall and Memorial Parks with your students! The park offers a variety of free curriculum-based programs for students of all ages. Please contact us for information about the programs we offer and to schedule your visit. Email Education Staff

Programs are subject to availability and scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis. We may also be able to work with you to create a program specifically for your class. Park rangers may be available for presentations at your school. Rangers focus on historical and natural park resources, as well as the National Park Service and careers in the parks.


Every Kid in a Park

Bringing your fourth graders to National Mall and Memorial Parks? Let us know, and a ranger can greet you in the park and tell your students about the President's "Every Kid in a Park" initiative! Email us to let us know when you will be visiting the park.
