Bring Your Students to the Castle!
The education programs at Bayside Historical Society are designed to enhance the New York State Common Core Curriculum Standards in Social Studies.
Our highly interactive programs welcome students from elementary school through high school, and many make use of the Society’s archives at The Officers’ Club at Fort Totten Park. Through the use of primary and secondary sources, students are encouraged to become active historians. They are given the opportunity to examine authentic artifacts and documents, such as letters, photographs and maps. Students are motivated to hypothesize and interpret, and to use their deductive reasoning skills. Our programs are tailored to meet the age and interest level as well as the special needs of visiting students.
