Your class has earned a coveted All-Access Pass to the hallowed halls of college football. On your field trip, you and your students will experience the science, history, rivalries, and pageantry that have made college football one of the most beloved sports in America.

The College Football Hall of Fame is highly immersive and engaging. It blends historic artifacts with state-of-the-art multimedia college football exhibits. Your class will get a vivid look into the rich traditions and contagious excitement of the game. You are sure to score points with your students as you use the topic of sports, along with the interactive experiences at the Hall of Fame itself, to connect the educational themes of the exhibition to national and local T.E.A.M.S.™ curricula – Technology, Engineering, the Arts, Mathematics and Science.

Your students will be swept up in the spirit of college football with a chance to paint their faces (virtually!), show their school spirit through song, play the role of an on-camera sports broadcaster, listen to player interviews, and build their own college football program. This will be the field trip of the year.

As a companion to your field trip experience to The College Football Hall of Fame, comprehensive Teacher’s Guides for Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12 are available for you to download and use before, during, and after your school visit. These Teacher’s Guides contain original T.E.A.M.S.™ classroom lesson plans along with additional inquiry-based interdisciplinary activities and project ideas incorporating social studies and language arts for you to use and share. You will also find ready-to-copy activity worksheets with detailed instructions for both you and your students allowing for straightforward assessment. Rounding out the lesson plans are football-themed games and puzzles, recommended reading lists, a “Football 101” reference guide, and a timeline of college football in U.S. history.

We know how important it is to be able to justify field trips and document how instructional time is spent outside your classroom. The Hall offers FREE Teacher’s Playbooks directly correlated to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts along with both the Next Generation Science Standards and the C3 Framework for Social Studies State Standards. Also included are the state content standards for Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee for your planning needs.
