TIME TRAVELERS'

Educator Guide

Welcome to our Virtual Event!  This all digital Time Travelers' experience is designed to transport your classroom to the 19th Century right here in Fresno County, California. 

The experience is broken into three areas: Daily Life, Historic Figures and Communities.

The Daily Life section presents students with a picture of what life was like in the 19th and very early 20th century.  Each of the four sections presents a video or photo album along with a short reading and a down loadable question sheet that can be used to guide discussion, assigned as quick write prompt or taken as a quiz. 

The Historic Figures section presents personal profiles of five real people who lived in Fresno County during the 1800s.  

The Communities section offers a photo album and reading on three specific groups.  The Native American tribes for whom the Central Valley is their ancestral home and two immigrant communities that came to the area between 1850 and 1915.  Each of these also includes a downloadable list of questions that can be used to guide discussion, assigned as quick write prompt or taken as a quiz.

 

The questions have been designed for 4th and 5th grade classes, but can be augmented to work for any grade level.
