History Adventures: Life During Ancestral Pueblo Times

Los Alamos History Museum News:

Get outside and get creative with your elementary school child this week with History Adventures. This week’s theme is storytelling in history and connects with our plateau’s rich Ancestral Pueblo history.

The Los Alamos History Museum is sharing fun, hands-on activities and adventures every week this month with History Adventures at www.LosAlamosHistory.org/Childrens_Programs.

This week, learn about life during Ancestral Pueblo times hundreds of years ago with an exploration of an Ancestral Pueblo site in downtown Los Alamos or a visit to Bandelier National Monument. Stories passed down through generations are an important way we learn about the past, and kids will reflect on the stories they already know about history and how we learn and share history.

They’ll also have a chance to be a historian and learn new history by interviewing a friend or family member about their past. Everything you need to get started is in the free History Adventures pdf activity packet.

There are five different themes to explore, with a new theme each week in June. Every week there will be an outdoor adventure, a hands-on activity that lets kids make history, and a photo challenge to spark kids’ creativity. We’ll share updates each week in June with information about that week’s History Adventures theme.

All the activities are available now, so if you’re excited and want to try them sooner, go at your own pace! We’d love to see the connections you make with history—share photos from your family’s History Adventures and tag us @LosAlamosHistory on Facebook or Instagram.
