Some Hints for Planning an Educational Field Trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
There are a few things to keep in mind when planning an educational field trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in New York City.
The National Park service recommends that groups maintain a ratio of 1 adult to every 10 students. Chaperones must remain with their students at all times on the ferry and while touring the islands and monuments.
To enter the Statue of Liberty, each member of the group needs a monument pass. It is best to get these in advance because there is a limited number available at the ferry stations.
Also, due to security measures at the ferry landings and the monuments themselves, allow for extra time to pass through primary security screenings similar to those of airports.
And be sure to consult the National Park Service’s guidelines concerning items that are banned from the monuments. As noted in the article published on the Educational Travel Consultants website, it is probably best to encourage students to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island without backpacks or large purses.
