ABOUT THE TOUR

 

The American Heritage Tour is a constantly evolving educational journey for middle school students history and contributing effectively as citizens.  The planning, group work and tour itinerary are parallel to Maine’s Common Core of Learning and provide a wonderful opportunity to share a vision with the local school systems that participate.  Students meet for an entire year to learn about the places they will visit and how the history and culture of that place or time impacts our world today.
