Irvine Park Railroad’s Fourth Grade California History Education Program Family Day – For Homeschooled Students OC Parks - Irvine Regional Park
Irvine Regional Park
On Tuesday, February 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., take a trip back in time with Irvine Park Railroad’s (located inside Irvine Regional Park) Fourth Grade California History Education Program Family Day for homeschooled students. Usually only offered for school field trips, Irvine Park Railroad will open the program up to the public for one day only.
Created by teachers, for teachers, this hands-on learning experience meets the State of California curriculum requirements for fourth grade history.
Six different stations make up the program: a ride on the Irvine Park Railroad train, an authentic mine shaft, miner’s camp, water wheel that runs a replica sawmill and a historic old west building complete with a jail cell and saloon. Visitors can also pan for gold just like the 49’ers did during the gold rush.
