Pittsfield History: A Curriculum

Pittsfield History: A Curriculum

The city of Pittsfield is celebrating its 250th anniversary this year!  As part of the year-long 250th celebration, a curriculum has been developed for teaching kids about the city’s history- and it has been posted online so that parents and families can utilize the resources and information offered.  There are units on how the Great Depression affected the city, the changes in mills and mill buildings over time, immigrants, notable locals, and more!  There’s even an activity that takes kids on a walking tour of war memorials, and one that sends them on a scavenger hunt at the state forest- get your kids to learn about local history and their community while spending time outdoors!  Check out the curriculum on the city’s website: pittsfield250.com/curriculum
