Educational Activities

Our Education team has created Educational Guides and Coloring Pages for use in your classroom and home.  Our Guides are suited for a range of age groups and feature many activities that align with educational standards in the United States and United Kingdom, such as Common Core.  Most are designed for use with middle and high school students, though many activities can be adjusted for younger students or adapted to college level courses.

Our Coloring Pages feature a variety of images and objects from our exhibits.  They are great for introducing younger children to our museum, or providing a fun activity for older children and adults!

Educational Guides in Action!

We love hearing how our guides have been successfully used in classrooms of all levels.  Below, check out some awesome things students have accomplished using our exhibitions and their accompanying guides.  Submit your pictures or story showing our educational activities in use, and we'll feature it below!

High School Students from Michigan

Students from a high school in Michigan used our Girls of World War I exhibit and educational guide to create a diary entry and paper doll.  Check it out:

The diary above reads: "March 7, 1916.  Today I take Ruth to her first day of child care.  Tomorrow I start my first day working in the shell filling factory.  It makes me a bit nervous leaving Ruth in the hands of others and going to work with TNT all day.  There have already been a few explosions in which many working women were killed.  I fear this job but I need the work and the wages are good.  I haven't eaten much lately and its been hard to find any fruit, vegetables or meat.  One thing I found quite strange was that some butchers actually began to sell dead cats.  How strange!  Today has been different than most due to Ruth having the opportunity of the nursery.  Also that I finally obtained a job and am now able to have a bit of extra money coming in.  I think this will be good for both of us.  Hopefully everything goes well within the factory."
