The New Hampshire Historical Society offers artifact-based traveling programs that deliver a memorable hands-on experience. A museum educator from the Society will come to your classroom with one of the following programs for your students to explore:
On the Abenaki Trail
Using original and contemporary artifacts, students learn about the culture of the Abenaki Native Americans and how life changed for them after contact with European settlers.
Going to School: Education in Early New Hampshire
Imagine what it was like going to school in a single room with children of all ages. Students will explore the evolving ideas of education and different classroom experiences between the 17th and early 20th centuries.
Immigration and the Granite State
Students will explore primary sources and artifacts to reach conclusions about different immigrant experiences in New Hampshire and discover how immigration enriches society.
New Hampshire Hands at Work
Students will learn about the history of the Industrial Revolution in New Hampshire and explore five key industries, such as textile manufacturing, shoe making, granite quarrying, glass making, and the timber trades.
Redcoats and Rebels
This engaging board game puts students on opposing sides of the American Revolution as they race to capture Fort Ticonderoga in 1777. Students should have some basic knowledge of the American Revolution to get the most out of this program.
Traveling programs last about one hour. The cost is $70 per session, plus roundtrip mileage at the current IRS rate, and tolls if applicable. Each session is capped at 30 students (24 for Redcoats and Rebels).
