After developing content knowledge, continue the learning with a hands-on workshop in the Museum's classrooms.

This workshop is geared toward educators of grades 6 to 12. Educators of all grade levels welcome.

New York City History Day is an education program that engages students in grades 6-12 in the discovery and interpretation of historical topics. By participating in History Day, students can research topics related to the annual theme and can express themselves creatively through various formats such as exhibit boards, documentaries, websites, papers, and performances.
