For over ten years, the National Museum of American History has helped young learners engage with history in the classroom, at home, and in the museum by starting with outstanding children’s books. Go behind the scenes with a museum educator to explore prewritten activities about September 11, slavery, or the Civil Rights Movement, and envision how you could apply the same strategy with other topics.
