Putting Collections Into the Classroom: The Project

Patricia Erikson, Washington State History Museum, USA

The Washington State History Museum will demonstrate its extensive, online curricular materials. By digitizing our collections and e-publishing teacher lesson plans and student webquests, we have been able to place primary historical materials into classrooms and homeschool environments statewide. By presenting digital images of artifacts, and scans of historical documents and maps, These curricular materials have been tailored to and incorporate state learning requirements.
