Assembly Programs: Cultural Awareness & History

Battleship New Jersey

Battleship New Jersey's Education Outreach Program brings a piece of the ship's history to your classroom. Students will be engaged and entertained while studying artifacts, primary source documents, and other hands-on activities. Teachers may choose from cross-curricular classes which encompass math, science, history, art, social studies, technology, and language arts and are aligned with state core curriculum standards. The cost of the 45 minute class is $125 for up to 35 students plus mileage if outside a fifty mile radius of the ship. In our 90-minute Assembly Program, your students will have the opportunity to conduct an exercise in oral history with a veteran of America's military forces. A Power Point Presentation will be used for students to discover the rich history of the Battleship New Jersey. Through interpretation of artifacts and primary source documents, students will evaluate the effectiveness of the Battleship New Jersey in history. Students will interact with the presenters and one lucky student will get to dress in navy uniform! Short video clips of oral histories from those who served will enhance the educational experience, as well as clips of the battleship's 16" guns in action. Cost is $300 plus mileage if outside a fifty mile radius of the ship.
