The following comments were submitted by Wisconsin and Illinois teachers about their field trips to Old World Wisconsin.

“Fantastic as usual! The students loved every minute! Thanks for a job well-done!”

“The highlight was that our students were able to learn and experience life like it was in the past. It totally reinforced what they had been learning in class. As teachers we LOVED how organized and smoothly things went.”

“Hearing my students say, “that was in our social studies book”, really made me realize that the efforts on the presenters and organizers parts ties into the curriculum we teach. I was very pleased to see the students making those connections!”

“The greatest thing to see as a teacher is every single student engaged and EXCITED about what the teacher has to say. Every single staff member was able to engage every student and the kids were gushing about how much fun they had the entire way home.”

“We enjoy learning new things every time we come here.”

“I have been bringing 4th graders to you for 12 years, and this visit was by far the best ever. All options were diverse and the students were active learners.”

“Loved the opportunity to see my students engaged in learning. Students took responsibility for learning and worked together to find information.”
