How many nicknames do you know for the State of Minnesota? Who was the first Governor of the State? Who is our current Governor? Why is St. Paul the capital and not Minneapolis? Who lived here before the Europeans migrated into this area? MN State history is all around us and this class will provide opportunities to dig into our State’s past and find out all sorts ofinteresting stories, puzzles, mysteries and facts. This class is designed for middle school students 5-8 grade. We will utilize hands on activities such as artifact digs, potential field trips, etc. We will also use primary source documents, art, literature, web searches and our own neighborhoods to learn more about our Minnesota history.
