Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, the world famous CNN Center is the global headquarters of CNN and Turner Broadcasting. The Studio Tour includes the one-of-a-kind re-creation of the main control room, where students can see and hear the behind-the-scenes elements of 24-hour news. They can test their knowledge with the journalism ethics display, and learn just how images–like weather maps–are made to appear behind anchors and correspondents.

At the World of Coke students will learn while exploring the complete story—past, present and future—of the world’s best-known brand! For over 120 years, Coke has been putting its secret formula into bottles. Now, they have put it all in one amazing place. See the largest collection of Coke memorabilia in the world, have your picture taken with the Coca-Cola polar bear, and taste samples of Coke from around the world!

CNN Studios

Take a backstage tour inside CNN Studio’s, the global headquarters of The Worldwide Leader in News.

Plans and activities are available to enrich your tour of CNN’s world headquarters before, during and after your trip.

World of Coke

Students will learn while exploring the complete story—past, present and future—of the world’s best-known brand! From a thrilling multisensory 4-D theater to a marvelously restored 1880’s soda fountain, you’ll experience something new and inviting around every corner. You and your students have so much to learn and will also take home a special one-of-a-kind World of Coca-Cola glass bottle produced exclusively for our guests on our fully-functioning bottling line. Snap a photo with our 7-foot Coca-Cola Polar Bear. Take your taste buds on a tantalizing tour with over 60 different products to sample from around the world or create your own refreshing blend.

Students will also see the effects on the body of disease and unhealthy life choices – what happens to the lungs, for example, when people smoke. BODIES…The Exhibition provides an unprecedented opportunity for learning human anatomy, health, and biology.

Fox Theater

The historic Fox Theatre is one of Atlanta’s premiere venues for live entertainment. Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, originally the Yaarab Temple Shrine Mosque, was designed in the late 1920s as headquarters for the 5,000-member Shriners organization. It was a beautifully outlandish, opulent, and grandiose monument during the excesses of the pre-crash 1920s. Students will experience the grand architecture of the mosque-like structure complete with minarets, onion domes, and an interior décor even more lavish than its façade. The Fox’s 4,678 seat theatre is booked more than 300 performances a year ranging from Broadway to rock to comedy to movies.

Medieval Times

A field trip of epic proportions. Watch as your lesson plans come to life in our 11th century-style castle. It’s an interactive educational experience your students will treasure.

Atlanta Zoo

With a living laboratory representing more than 200 species, Zoo Atlanta offers countless opportunities for teachers and students to explore, discover, observe and apply real-world context to the lessons learned in school. There’s always something exciting going on at Zoo Atlanta including animal keeper talks, training demonstrations, shows, animal encounters and more! Specific educational programs can be added. Content covers Georgia Performance Standards for your grade in a lively, engaging format. Program activity packets developed by Zoo staff and certified Georgia teachers include activities to conduct with your class prior to your visit, right after your program while at the Zoo, and once you return to the classroom.

Fernbank Museum
