Due to COVID-19, the Society is currently not hosting outreach programming, but thanks to an Ohio History Fund - COVID 19 Emergency Grant and other local foundations, the agency is working with its presenters to develop online opportunities in the future. Check back for more information or call the Society office at 330.535.1120 and leave a message for a staff member to provide you more details.
We offer two 4th Grade Outreach Programs which are presented in-class by one of our staff members.
A River Through Time
A River Through Time transports students back to the ice age where they learn how the landscape of Northeast Ohio developed. As students continue their "river journey", they discover the world and cultures of the Paleo People, Archaic, and Woodland Indians. Complete with artifacts that are thousands of years old, classroom activities and student participation, this hour-long program reinforces many of the state standards, including the use of time-line, sequence, history, geography and vocabulary. This program is designed for fourth grade. It is approximately one hour in length. The cost is $35 per classroom. Please call 330-535-1120 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
Towpath to the Past
Towpath to the Past highlights the creation of the Ohio and Erie Canal and its impact on the social and economic growth of Akron, Summit County and the State of Ohio. A traveling lock model complements the numerous pictures, maps, and artifacts. This program is entertaining, educational and encourages class participation. This program is designed for fourth grade. It is approximately one hour in length. The cost is $35 per classroom. Please call 330-535-1120 or send an email to email@example.com to schedule.
