Academic Programs

Live It Learn It offers a robust menu of 21 academic programs at two dozen
of the most interesting and important sites in the nation’s capital.

We work closely with educators at our partner sites to develop rigorous and engaging activities that are interdisciplinary, age-appropriate, and aligned to Common Core standards. We also provide all instruction, curricular materials, and transportation for each program.

Each participating class of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders gets to choose two programs to experience during the academic year. Our units consist of three sessions taught by Live It Learn It educators – a pre-trip classroom lesson, an intensive trip, and a post-trip classroom reflection.
