Investigate the historic landscape through the lenses of science, history, and culture with the Historic Indian Agency House's free "The Historic Landscape" curriculum guide, packed with hands on activities and lessons for the entire family.
Investigate the historic landscape around you:
Cultural geographer J.B. Jackson said, “Landscape is history made visible.” What does that mean?
What is a landscape? What are the components of a landscape? How do people interact with the landscape? Do physical and cultural landscapes change over time? How and why?
Investigate the historic landscape with engaging lessons and hands-on activities through the perspectives of science, art, humanities, and American Indian Studies in Wisconsin (Act 31).
Although geared toward grades 4 through 6, the free learning guide is readily adaptable for younger or older children and adults.
In a classroom setting, this curriculum may be used as a stand-alone unit, or the lessons may be used a-la-carte to supplement a standard curriculum. Wisconsin educational standards are included for your convenience.
