The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is now scheduling its History smArts program for this fall.
The program offers in-school experiences for all grade levels. Museum educators travel into classrooms to teach arts-infused history lessons with hands-on activities that the students can take home.
Students become historians as they analyze images from KHS collections and do a hands-on activity such as quill writing, making clay pinch pots, observational drawing, building a town, making a book or spinning wool. Through Visual Thinking Strategies discussions students develop skills in visual literacy, historical literacy and critical thinking.
