Teachers Guides

A series of guides are available for you to use during your museum visit and afterward in your classroom. They will help you challenge your students to "Think Like a Historian" by thinking critically, making personal connections with history, and evaluating information by asking "why," "how," and most importantly, "how do you know?"

After Your Visit

Historical Literacy Teachers Guides

Historical Literacy Guides are available for you to use in your classroom after touring the Wisconsin Historical Museum. By focusing on objects, artifacts, maps, photographs and other primary sources from the Museum's collection, students will be able to redefine how they learn from objects and from history.

These guides also help meet state and federal curriculum standards for social studies.
