Curriculum Standards

First Capitol field trips will enable your students to meet Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for Social Studies and Science Instruction as provided by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. See more information about standards in the Chapter 1 Packet.

The printable activity packets below were designed to enhance a visit to First Capitol for elementary school students. If you are unable to visit, we hope you will still be able to use our materials to augment your social studies curriculum. Please feel free to photocopy any part of the packet as necessary.
