Mound House is a cultural and environmental learning experience that your students will never forget. The downloadable documents below give you everything you need to ensure everyone gets as much as they can from this adventure. Book a tour with us if you haven’t planned for your school trip to the Mound House.
Please note, in keeping with CDC guidelines, and since we are in an area of high COVID-19 transmission, the Mound House is not booking field trips for 2021. Please reach out to us in 2022 to plan your field trip.
TIPS FOR TEACHERS
The Mound House site is limited in size and can accommodate a maximum of 50 students per school visit. Before arriving, have students divided into 4 equal-sized groups. Student name tags are recommended. Mound House student activities are conducted in an “outdoor classroom” setting. We recommend bringing insect repellent, sunscreen, bottled water, and snacks. Picnicking is available on Mound House grounds. Once you have crossed onto Fort Myers Beach, give us a call at (239) 765-0865.
