Education & School Programs
Third graders are taken back in time to the 1880’s to spend a day in an authentic, one-room schoolhouse.
RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
Fourth graders learn about the branches of government, the responsibility of voting, and the rights afforded by the first amendment while experiencing government in action at the Oxley Center.
HANDS ON HISTORY
Fifth graders come to the Hancock Historical Museum for “hands on history” to cook, weave, quilt, and experience handwriting with a quill pen.
The Trunks are a free resource for area teachers and may be “rented” from the museum for a week at a time. Each trunk provides books, DVDs, reproduction artifacts, and other teacher resources. Topics include the War of 1812, the Underground Railroad, Tool & Gadgets, and Agriculture.
Museum volunteers take programming on the road, presenting monthly lectures at more than ten retirement communities in the area, as well as the Hancock County Agency on Aging- Senior Center. Topics include Findlay Newspapers, the Gas Boom, Riverside Park, Herstory, and many more.
