History Detectives: Primary Source Investigations

Grades 4 – 10

How do historians learn about the past? What is a primary source? In History Detectives, students will explore and analyze objects from the Museum’s collection as they learn decoding and interpretation skills. Students work in small groups and learn how to read artifacts, documents, and photographs as they develop skills of historical inquiry. This program teaches students how to decode an object in order to learn about the past and about the people who lived it.
