I can't wait to share your wealth of resources with other staff members at my school!
Melissa Hallowell, fourth grade teacher
Education is at the core of the Virginia Historical Society's mission. We invite you to explore the resources we have created for educators and students. Many of these resources are appropriate to use in a school or home classroom setting. Such programs as Teaching with photographs and Linking to Our Past contain resources for both teacher and student to use.
If you cannot take advantage of a program at the VHS, we can bring some of our programs into your classroom either in person or virtually.
If you live in Virginia, we invite you to explore our classroom programs. A museum educator will arrive at your school with a hands-on history program full of replica artifacts and documents for students to explore. Whether you live in Virginia or not, we also invite you to explore our distance learning programs. Through interactive videoconferencing equipment, your students will have the ability to talk in real time to a museum educator about the history of Virginia.
