Field Trip Resources & Common Core

Students learning how to write with a fountain pen during a Whaling Tour.

Mystic Seaport provides a springboard for meaningful, integrated learning experiences that offer varied opportunities for addressing the Common Core State Standards. Students at all levels can access and gather information from primary sources, investigate topics, analyze, integrate, and present information in many forms.

We hope you will find these resources helpful when preparing for a self-guided or staff-guided tour.
