If you want a way to get youngsters interested in what they learn about in their lessons, history school tours could be the answer.
They enable kids to get firsthand experience of some of the most well-known historical events by being able to see where they took place, get an idea about how they unfolded and witness what effects they had on the local area.
Whether your class is learning about ancient legends, World War I or 20th century events, being able to explore the places where they took place in the flesh is likely to encourage students' interest in the topic.
And by using Equity School Travel's services, you'll be able to enjoy a tailor-made excursion suited to your group, taking them to all the sites that are relevant to what they are studying at the time.
Where to go on history school trips?
Everywhere in the world has some historical value – a treaty may have been signed there, or perhaps it is where a battle once took place – which can make choosing where to go a difficult task.
We can ensure that the itinerary we make for you suits the curriculum you are following, whether it means you'll visit Normandy for battlefield school trips, go to Athens to view ancient ruins or head to Berlin to see important locations in the first and second world wars.
A trip to this German city will enable you to visit Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and see where the atrocities within this compound took place. Or you could head to the Jewish Museum to learn more about the history of German Jews for the last 2,000 years and take a look at different memorials.
Indeed, if you're studying political history, a visit to Washington DC could be on the cards, with the school group getting the opportunity to learn about the US's influence on huge events in the last century, including the Vietnam War and World War II.
