Fourth Grade students in Auburn will soon get passports, but not to leave the country.
The Passport to History Program allows students to explore cultural and historic sites across the city to learn more about their local history and how it ties into state and national events.
Kate Grindsatff, with the Seward House, is heading the program. She says that “all 4th graders are invited to be a part of this program and it basically offers every child who, at that point will be learning about their local New York State history, a chance to actually go and visit eight of the historical sites around their own community.”
Fourth Graders will receive their passports at their respective schools.
The eight participating sites are the Cayuga Museum, City Hall, Equal Rights Heritage Center, Harriet Tubman National Historical Park, Schweinfurth Art Center, Seward House, Seymour Library, and Willard Chapel.
