Discover Your Place in History!
Bring history to life for your students with this free, standards-based curriculum that examines early settlement history through the lens of your hometown.
To get started:
The sequence of the Colonial Quest Curriculum is driven by questions:
- WHO were the first residents here?
- WHERE did the colonists come from?
- WHEN and WHY did they come?
- HOW was our town chartered?
- WHAT did the colonists do to establish this town?
The curriculum's approach integrates place-based education, primary source exploration, and service learning: students use maps and town charters to track movement and settlement; they find early settlers in old burial grounds; learn more about specific people using proprietor's records, the census and town histories; and share their learning via a Quest (educational treasure hunt).
