Hands-on War Museum part 4

Help me give my students a hands-on museum of items to discover American wars.

My Students

Our students are excited to learn about United States history. I wish you could see their faces and hear their comments as they work with our hands-on materials.

My students are inquisitive, motivated, and genuinely curious about the past.

They come from families that are supportive of education and expect their children to succeed and excel.

I teach both Honors and grade level Social Studies. Working with materials hands-on brings history to life for all kids whether they are English language learners, have a learning disability, are gifted, or have no special needs at all. Our students can connect the past to the present which empowers them with the potential to make good choices in the future.
