New Virtual Field Trip

Creek Nation
They keep coming! The  Creek Nation virtual field trip is now available for students on our  website and on the  GPB app. This virtual experience provides students with an in-depth look at the lives of the Creek Indians prior to the arrival of the first settlers in Georgia, the fight to remain on their land, and their removal from Georgia in the 1830s. It is a perfect way to bring the classroom content surrounding this period to life.

Creek Nation addresses state standards  SS8H2 and  SS8H4 of the Georgia Standards of Excellence for eighth grade Georgia Studies. It also covers  SS4H3b for fourth grade United States history. We recommend that students explore this virtual field trip after they have completed Unit 4 of the  Georgia Studies Book: Our State and Our Nation or material referencing the removal of the Creeks from Georgia.
