The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will come to your classroom for hands-on fun! It is time to book lessons for the spring. The historical society is offering a discounted rate for teachers that would like to participate in its job-embedded professional development program.
KHS brings this standards-based, art-infused history lesson to your classroom. Students analyze historic images from the KHS collection, discuss what they see and do a fun, hands-on art activity.
Options for lessons include:
- artifact analysis and drawing;
- pioneer pastimes (making marbles or spinning wool);
- writing citizenship letters or bill proposals with a quill pen and ink; and
- reading maps and designing a town.
Students can experience making a:
- Civil War or explorer journal;
- Native American pinch pot;
- campaign button;
- Kentucky invention; or
- timeline of progress.
Spots will fill up quickly, so contact Megan Sauter, student outreach coordinator for the KHS, by phone at (502) 564-1792, ext. 4425, or by email at Megan.Sauter@ky.gov. For more information, go to History smArts.
