Thousands of Long Island students continue to participate in our discovery programs conducted by our Educator and her staff, which include the popular 18th Century Colonial Childhood and Craftsman workshops at Lloyd Manor. Students experience Long Island’s history through hands-on activities which include role playing, house hunts and craft projects. Over the past two years we have expanded our educational programs to include opportunities for families, senior groups and community clubs and organizations. The Farmingdale State College Institute of Learning and local libraries have booked trips to Lloyd Manor for programs ranging from the American Revolution to the African-American experience on Long Island. We also continue to collaborate with several Long Island school district “teacher centers” to provide in-service courses on Long Island history for educators.
All programs meet New York State English Language Arts Standard 1 and Social Studies Standard 1. Pre and post-visit materials are included. Cost for field trips is $7 per student with a $50 minimum per program.
