The Spotsylvania County Museum is dedicated to educating people far and near on the history of Spotsylvania County. To take our mission outside of the museum, we have added some educational resources for everyone to access.
Guide to Doing History with Objects
The Object of History | Behind the Scenes with the Curators of the National Museum of American History, is an essay developed through a partnership between the National Museum of American History and the George Mason Center for History and New Media. It was written by Museum curators and introduces teachers to the variety of stories objects can tell. The site includes links to other resources for interpreting primary resources. This can be helpful when preparing or developing an understanding for a visit to the museum and how it can be used as an educational resource.
History Makers are people that have taken action, acted as leaders, and have left legacies that have shaped our world today. These cards are meant to help others learn the significance of those who have impacted the nation and Spotsylvania County. This is achieved through research, memorization, and critical thinking. There is a blank template so anyone can make their case on who a history maker is to them.
Our word searches include words that are found in the museum. There are different levels of difficulty so make sure to try them all!
