The Museum produces a variety of printed materials to assist precollegiate educators and to enhance the general public's appreciation of Florida history. Items for classroom use, including pre-visit materials, typically provide background information and lesson ideas, developed with state curriculum guidelines (FCAT) in mind. Teachers also receive, and others may request, the annual "Guide to Programs," which presents an overview of activities offered at the Museum's two sites. Students and adults who are researching historical topics are welcome to contact the Museum to inquire about resources and possible handouts.
PDF documents require a PDF reader such as the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
The Museum of Florida History is pleased to offer a teaching resource filled with prepared activities, books, films, and objects for teachers and students to explore. This traveling trunk is based on the popular Museum education program, My Symbols, My State, My Florida. Targeted to grades K-3, it is designed to meet Sunshine State Standards and be FCAT-friendly. The trunk explores the concept of symbolism through learning about representations of Florida. The trunk is available at no cost to teachers in the Tallahassee area. There is a charge to cover shipping to teachers and schools outside of the capital. For more details or to make a reservation, please e-mail or call the Museum Education Staff at (850) 245-6400.
