California Experience's traveling program ignites history learning with exiting in-school programs that support your curriculum based needs

The California Experience

Interactive Lessons in California History

The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled. -- Plutarch


The California Experience is a traveling multicultural program that comes to your school to supplement your existing history and social science curriculum with hands-on, interactive lessons about California history.

For LESS than the cost off bussing a single class to a museum, we come to your school and provide all your students experiential lessons in the skills used by people in our past.  Our trained, experienced docents provide students interactive experience in such areas as:

  • Lesson 1:  A day In the Life of Father Serra
  • Lesson 2:  How a Mission Blacksmith Fabricates Iron Using a Covered Wagon Forge
  • Lesson 3:  Making Adobe (hands on for all grades)
  • Lesson 4:  Panning for "Real Fools Gold" (hands on for all grades)
  • Lesson 5  How Women Spun and Wove Textiles. 
  • Lesson 6  Making Rope (hands on for all grades).

The California Experience complements your curriculum to help ignite the imagination, curiosity, and comprehension of your students.  You may select a single lesson for your student body to experience, or all six lessons.
