Homeschool Program---Moving Day: Colorado's Migration Story

When: Monday, October 27, 2014 - 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Where: Monument Library - 1706 Lake Woodmoor Drive at Monument Meeting Room

If you enjoyed History Colorado’s Western Works program that we did last school year, you’ll also want to participate in Moving Day: Colorado’s Migration Story. This program uses artifacts and hands-on activities that explore the movement of people across Colorado from pre-history to 1870. Students become “experts” on one of the following cultural groups: ancient Puebloans, Utes, Cheyenne and Arapaho, Hispanos, mountain men, or miners. Designed for 4th graders, this program becomes a fun, collaborative effort for all ages working together. Please email Sandy at syates@ppld.org with names and ages of your children if you're planning to attend.
