History @ Home with Keeler Tavern

julHistory @ Home with Keeler TavernVIRTUAL EVENT

Event Details

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center’s Education Department is working hard to provide activities and resources for learning at home. The following units are based on our popular school programs and will be updated weekly through the spring to add new content for at home use.

We are developing three sets of digital learning units:

  1. Stories from Our Site uses the history of the historic house museum and the beautiful gardens as a window into three decades of the site’s history. This includes a unit using elements from our popular “Colonial Life” program.
  2. National Connections uses local history to illuminate national events—The Battle of Ridgefield, the only inland battle in Connecticut during the American Revolution, is a core story here at the museum and our units will cover grades 4 through 12.
  3. Our annual #HandsOnHistory exhibit has been redesigned to offer STEM & STEAM learning digitally.

Our school programs and online learning units support the C3 Frameworks for Social Studies, Connecticut Social Studies Frameworks, and Common Core Learning Standards. If you have any questions, please reach out by emailing [email protected].
