Teaching Aids from National Trust for Historic Preservation

March 31, 2020

After writing When Jackie Saved Grand Central, I joined the National Trust for Historic Preservation society to help preserve old buildings and our history. If you are looking for things to do to homeschool, their site has many activities for kids including coloring pages, book lists, history articles, crafts and virtual tours. 

Here's one link from their site that leads you to a National Park Service page for Women's History where kids can download a coloring page and make a Suffrage Cat. 

They also have lists of books for kids and teens that spotlight historic preservation and building

Here's a virtual tour of Nina Simone's childhood home where the "High Priestess of Soul" discovered her love for music.
