Curriculum for Your Classroom

Use primary sources to enhance your study of the past.

Photos, political cartoons, letters, recipes, and more provide students with opportunities to build skills in critical thinking, inquiry, inference, and classroom discussions.

Classroom Curriculums

Classroom curriculums are keyed to 2020 New Jersey State Learning Standards and use primary source material in the collection of MHHM.
