Take Home History — Free Educational Packets for Children

School is over for the year but there is still plenty of time to learn over the summer! The Murray County Museum has created two educational history packets for young children connected to Murray County history! There is a packet for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade and one for children in 3rd to 4th grade. These packets are available in both English and Spanish and include the Minnesota State Education Standards for each lesson. The packets include five short history lessons with a journal or draw section, and a couple fun activities including games, crafts, and snack ideas!
