The Wisconsin Historical Society recently launched a special project for educators, parents, and caregivers who are currently teaching children at home or from afar. “Big History is Happening” is a place to find myriad resources and opportunities to participate in teaching and learning activities through the past and present.
Learn how you can help collect history while staying at home and practicing social distancing by signing up for the 2020 COVID-19 Journal Project. Your thoughts and contributions can be an important part of history. Teachers can also turn this into a class project.
Explore history lessons and resources for all grade levels while preparing for National History Day on April 18.
Help children learn more about important moments in Wisconsin history, and browse the many education and activity resources the Wisconsin Historical Society has created.
Finally, delve into the extensive individual collections from specific community histories to Wisconsin shipwrecks to the online film collection available to the public.
