School Tours

Fourth-grade classes are invited to join school docents for a virtual field trip to Rancho Los Alamitos this fall. Sign up today!

What will fourth-grade virtual field trips be like?
Complementing California's history and social science curriculum, school docents will lead live, interactive sessions on Zoom similar to our Footprints on the Land field trip. Each 45-minute session features one area (the Ranch House, Gardens, or Barnyard) of the historic site. Docents will share history as they travel around the Rancho, and the presentation will also include primary sources and prompts that invite interaction between students and docents.
Please note that this is a pilot program with limited availability. More sessions will be available in 2021.

What about third-grade classes?

Third-grade classes will be invited in 2021 to sign up for access to a video series created by Tongva Cultural Educators that supports California's third-grade history and social science curriculum, similar to our Tovaave: A Tongva Cultural Program field trip. Please stay tuned for information about how to sign up.

How do I sign my fourth-graders up?

Review the fall tour topics and schedule here, select your top three dates, and fill out our interest form. We will confirm your virtual field trip selection via email. Please note that each teacher needs to sign up for their own class. If you have a split class, fill out one form per group of students. We can accommodate two classes on each virtual field trip, so note on the interest form if you'd like to combine with another class or teacher from your school.

Please contact schools@rancholosalamitos.org or (562) 431-3541 with any questions. We look forward to virtually welcoming you and your students to the Rancho this school year!
