Charlotte-Mecklenburg students are making some new arts and history field trips this year, thanks to a partnership between the schools and the Arts and Science Council.
Seventh-graders are visiting the Levine Center for the Arts, a cluster that includes the Mint Museum Uptown, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, and the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture.
Third-graders are adding the Mint Hill Historical Society and the Rural Hill Plantation in Huntersville to the options for a historic field trip, joining Historic Rosedale, the Latta Plantation and the James K. Polk State Historic Site.
In both cases, teachers have planned lessons to tie in with the trips. Staff reports
