Tour Lesson Plan

Sitting atop a double-decker bus or sitting at a window seat on a tour boat is one way to experience a place. Sightseeing tours are often narrated by knowledgeable tour guides. A sightseeing tour can provide your youth group with an opportunity to see entire cities in a short amount of time and learn about many aspects of that city such as, architecture, history, geography, and culture.

 

Walking tours also cover a lot of ground, but allow students and scouts up close and personal view of landmarks and historical sites. Some walking tours can be guided by actual historians, and others allow tourists to experience the sites at their own pace. If secrets and “Ah-ha’s” are what you’re looking for, a behind-the-scenes tour will provide you with the information you’ve been seeking. Although behind-the scenes tours are usually restricted to one location – theater, studio, museum, zoo – what they lack in sites they make up for with an intimate peek into the happenings behind closed doors.

 

Whatever tour you go on, keep your eyes peeled for all the wonders you’re sure to experience.
