History Lab

Grades 3 to 12

History Lab logoInspired by the Museum's collection, local classroom teachers wrote and tested History Lab lesson plans. They are grouped into 12 topics. Lessons from each unit may be used independently or as a set. Each lesson includes a lesson plan, student materials, and reproductions of artifacts and/or photographs from the Museum's collection. These materials may be downloaded, copied, and adapted for use in your classroom.



History Lab is made possible through a generous grant from the Polk Bros. Foundation.
