Young Historians Explore the Four Freedoms

This past Saturday the Education Department had its first Young Historians Tour as part of our Family Programming.  Our tour took place in the Roosevelt, Rockwell, and the Four Freedoms: America’s Slow March from Isolation to Action exhibit. Our young visitors put on their “historian’s hats” and explored the exhibit as a historian would-looking at the how’s, why’s, and what’s of history and then took some time to think about the lessons we can learn from this important period in America’s history. Kids were able to put on the white gloves and try out their historian skills by analyzing artifacts from the museum’s education collection. We finished off our tour with a Four Freedoms book making craft in the classroom. Tons of fun was had by all!

Several of our Young Historians were repeat visitors to our Family Programming. This programming is one of the great reasons to get your family a museum membership. Many educational and fun filled family events are coming up, so please take a look at our What’s On Calendar for further details.

Here are some photos of the kids in action:
