Hands-On History Experiences
The Milwaukee County Historical Society offers a variety of educational experiences for students of all ages. From a historic house, to a 176-year-old farm, to a downtown museum full of historic items and documents, there are many ways your class can enjoy learning about history.
Hands-On History In-School Experiences
Can’t make it to our downtown museum or Trimborn Farm? Or would you like an opportunity to expand upon your in-school curriculum? Hands-on History is for you!
One of our staff educators come to your classroom and brings their history trunks for your students to explore. A one-hour program, the educator explores a specific topic with your students that meets common core standards and allows them to experience artifacts through this hands-on and interactive experience.
Currently, the program is open to 3rd-5th grade classrooms. If you’d like more information or if you want to schedule your visit, please contact Mary Jo Knapp at email@example.com or 414-273-8288.
Milwaukee History Teacher Workshops
Twice a year, the Milwaukee County Historical Society and our partners offer teacher workshops. Educators gather for a day of learning and exploring Milwaukee history with an emphasis on curriculum development.
