The BIG History Lesson

Coordinated by:

Cheryl Natzmer

slide3
You and your students are invited to use the Michigan Historical Museum as your classroom for a week-long study of Michigan history.
slide5
The BIG History Lesson is a creative model for teacher-led, student centered learning within the museum environment. You design and lead a thematic unit of study tailored to the needs of your students and your teaching objectives.
slide7
The museum provides an ideal setting for interdisciplinary, hands-on and object-based learning.
slide9
Students talk with historians and learn about the daily lives of men, women and children in history through the objects they used. It’s all a part of the BIG History Lesson experience.
slide11
Children get a behind-the-scenes look at the museum. Here archivist Mark Harvey shows students the original Michigan constitution.
slide13
Teachers and museum staff plan a variety of learning experiences – including speakers, tours, discussions, individual and collaborative research. These students talk about French fur trading with a Voyageur.
slide15
Time for free-choice learning is an important aspect of the model. These students are attracted to a construction diagram of the Mackinac Bridge.
slide17
Students engage with historical materials by observing, journal writing, note-taking and sketching.
slide19
Students work alone or in small groups to conduct research on topics that are of personal interest.
slide21
Dressing up in period clothes and reenacting scenes from history lets students experience what life was like in the past.
slide27
Parent volunteers play an important role in modeling behavior and provide additional resources.
slide29
At the end of each week, students demonstrate what they’ve learned through presentations, performances, or acting as junior docents. Here a group plays jeopardy with questions they’ve contributed.
slide31
These students created puppets representing their favorite historical figures and staged a show as their culminating activity.
slide34
