New Jersey Industry

Grade 4

This program focuses on the fourth grade social studies curriculum standards for New Jersey Industry. Through the examination of objects from the Museum’s collection, students will explore several of the discoveries and inventions from Hoboken that contributed to the regional economy. 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 industrial past of our local region.
