Are you unable to leave the classroom for a tour? We can bring an engaging history program to you! We currently offer one traveling classroom program, but are able to tailor a program for your educational needs.
What is it that a historian actual does? Your students will find out during this interactive program which will teach them how historians play detective. Using primary sources and inquiry-based learning, students will compare historic and modern photographs of the same space looking for evidence of the past. Students will also handle and examine historic artifacts to figure out what they were used for and what they can tell us about society in the 19th century.
Meets Tennessee education standards in Social Studies for Second and Fourth Grade. Also meets Writing, English Language Arts standards for Fourth Grade.
