The Lincoln County Historical Association (LCHA) Education Outreach Program offers nine Lesson Resources for students and educators. These lessons are geared to American Colonial and early 19th century history. The topics, which offer an interdisciplinary approach to sharing history, cover the subject areas of Art, English, Math, and Social Studies.
Background information and work sheets that make up each lesson can be adapted for grades three and up. The PDF files are free upon request from Louise Miller, Education Director via the LCHA web site (www.lincolncountyhistory.org). To access the details for each Lesson Resource, click on Learn, then Youth, and pick Education Outreach. From the selection on the Education Outreach page, clicking on Lesson Resources will bring up the page giving details for each resource. The Lesson Resources will be sent to you via e-mail.
To request the Lesson Resources you are interested in, use the e-mail address given at the top of the Lesson Resource page (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please feel free to e-mail Mrs. Miller with any questions.
