Experiential learning is part of the fabric of Coggeshall Farm Museum. We are a living history museum exploring the lives of Rhode Island's tenant farmers working the fertile land along the salt marshes in the late 18th century.
As a museum of methods, we are uniquely poised to provide real-life contact with the past, while encouraging students of all ages to reflect on the differences and similarities with their lives in the present.
We are experienced in working with all ages and styles of learning, including:
We encourage you to contact us in advance so that we can tailor a program to your specific group. We can work with you to develop a custom lesson plan, workshop, internship or other learning experience. View a sample lesson plan.
Email Eleanor Langham for more information, to check available dates and plan your educational experience.
We recognize that many schools do not have the resources to fund admission and transportation costs for field trips. In an effort to help defray the cost of experiential education at Coggeshall Farm Museum, we have established the Sponsor a School program. We encourage you to tell your supporters about the program and ask them to donate to your particular school, district or program.
