Or, as an educator, you can print up to 50 passes at a time. You're a fourth-grade educator if:
- You're a teacher at a U.S. or U.S. military school, or
- You're an adult who engages fourth graders through a youth-serving organization. For example, a camp director, a home-school leader, an after-school leader, or a religious group leader.
They chose fourth graders because research shows that kids ages nine to 11 are beginning to learn about the world around them. They’re open to new ideas, and they are likely to connect to nature and our history.
This year is just the start! They will offer the pass to fourth graders every year.
Over time, all kids can get a free pass to explore our country.
