Local History

Grade 4

This program focuses on the fourth grade social studies curriculum standards for Local History. After examining several documents and images from the Museum’s collection, students will be given written narratives of four historical figures, each of whom had ties to Hoboken. Students will use critical thinking skills to determine which individual might have been the owner of the collection, and will work in groups to write a persuasive essay explaining the individual’s connection to Hoboken and how the documents may have belonged to him/her.
