Adventures in Georgia History

Interdisciplinary Lesson Plans Available February 3 on the Atlanta History Center?s Exclusive Curriculum Resource Page

The Atlanta History Center (AHC) is proud to announce the launch of a new web site dedicated to teachers and their students: the Curriculum Resources page. Housed within the Atlanta History Center's web site you will find a Curriculum Resources link that will take you directly to seven lesson plans. There you will find activities on a variety of subjects for students in grades 2-12. Each lesson comes with easy downloads of manuscripts, diagrams, photographs, and a wealth of primary source material. Also available in each lesson plan is a complete list of Georgia Quality Core Curriculum standards. The site was inspired by the AHC's seven permanent exhibition areas, the Civil War, folk art, the history of Atlanta, the pioneer farm, SE Native American culture, Swan House and the 1930s, and the Piedmont forest. A registration form appears on the site to allow you to register for our educators mailing list. The AHC hopes you will find this new site useful and asks that you contact the curriculum designer, whose email address you may find on the website, to share your thoughts and suggestions.
