Materion of Elmore, Ohio, Sponsors 4th Grade Students Visit to Hayes Presidential Museums

 

“We love this field trip – the students truly enjoy it!”

 

This school year, the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums welcomed over 100 4th grade students from Genoa Elementary School thanks to sponsor Materion of Elmore, Ohio. One of the Hayes Center's original sponsors of its recently designed Curriculum Connections Education Program. Educators from Genoa and Oak Harbor said, “We love this field trip – the students truly enjoy it!” After their visit to the Hayes Presidential Museums, students wrote thank you notes to Materion, one of these is pictured above.

Before students arrive, educators receive a pair of DVDs, featuring photographs, video presentations, written materials, artifacts, and online links to resources. Developed by the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums staff, the classroom satellite experience aligns with the state of Ohio's Social Studies standards. Students come prepared to experience firsthand the people and places who made History happen!

Materion's sponsorship has helped the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums reach out to more area schools in a time of reduced school budgets.
