As everyone continues to adapt with the times, CMF will be hosting a Virtual Field Trip to the California Missions and Presidios for every fourth grader in the state. It will truly be a special day on Thursday, February 11, 2021 from 10:00 am – 11:00 am.  This private virtual experience will take students on a unique and exciting journey through early California history visiting several sites along California’s Mission Trail.  This virtual field trip will enhance the current fourth grade curriculum on California history by introducing students to the Native Story, the Mission Story and the Maritime adventures of the past. All Fourth Grade Classrooms across the state of California are invited to attend this virtual classroom event free of charge.  Teachers must register their class on the CMF website with an email address in order to gain access to this virtual field trip.  To register, go to https://store.californiamissionsfoundation.org/SearchResults.asp?Cat=95.
