Texas Renaissance Festival – 9th Annual School Days November 5 & 6,  2013

The Texas Renaissance Festival invites all public, private and home school educators and students to join us for the 9th Annual School Days. School Days is offered exclusively as an educational opportunity. The festival grounds will not be open to the general public. It is designed to be age appropriate for students and all events, shows and activities will be both educational and entertaining.  Students, teachers and chaperones are invited to join the fun and come in costume.
Students step back in time as they enter the sights and sounds of New Market Village, an authentic recreation of a 16th century English Village.  Students will interact with King Henry VIII and his queen, as well as William Shakespeare and hundreds of other costumed characters representing the culture, art, science and literature of the Renaissance Period.
Jousting knights, musicians, jesters and magicians perform on stages and arenas throughout the village.  Students will have the opportunity to learn courtly dances, the ancient art of falconry, and the history of arms and armor.  Artisans in period dress illustrate the technological advances of the Renaissance age through live demonstrations in pottery, glass blowing blacksmithing, armor making and other arts and trades of this amazing period.  21778 FM 1774 Todd Mission, TX 77363

The Children’s Museum of Houston (CMH) offers learning through fun, educational exhibits and programs that provoke curiosity and inspiration. CMH believes that the process of learning is as important as the product. A Field Experience to CMH offers your students a learning experience through hands-on, minds-on activities. These activities surround your students with challenging problems and absorbing questions.
Go here for pre- and post-classroom activities aligned for Pre-K through 5th grade. Use them as a resource to prepare your students for their Field Trip experience or to continue the learning that takes place when you return to your personal classroom.
