Education Stations

Education stations at each museum will allow families to interact with educators as they explore a variety of historical topics as well as critical thinking, primary source analysis and how historians use clues from the past to put together a historical narrative.

At Jamestown Settlement, stations will examine the ways English colonists tried to make money for the Virginia Company of London, the importance of fire as a technology among the Virginia Indian, English and West Central African cultures, and the different types of sources that we can use to learn about the past.

At the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, stations will examine the roles of Native Americans in the American Revolution, lives of Black soldiers who fought in the Revolution, and how women participated in the war.
