The Farmers' Museum has a history of working closely with its sister institution, the New York State Historical Association, to provide curriculum materials and resources for the classroom. These lessons and activities bring history to life by delivering hands-on and engaging lessons for your students, while meeting New York State learning standards. They introduce students to key themes in New YorkState history, and help them to hone their analytical, interpretative, and literacy skills.
