- Students will learn the history of flags of the United States, using a flag display here at the museum.
- They will look at the use of patriotic themes and symbols in toys (both American and foreign).
- Students will identify occupations in the Ohio Valley, both past and present, using our City of Wheeling display and Ohio Valley Room as backdrops and visual aids.
- Using the historical artifacts in the museum (toys and otherwise), students will explore the history of the Ohio Valley, its people, and its contributions to America as a whole.
- As a craft activity, students will have an opportunity to make a flag of their own (a collage, actually) to represent things important in their lives. They will be able to take these with them for home or their classroom.
- As a wrap-up activity, students will visit our operating O gauge train layout and look for and identify patriotic symbols used on the layout.
This program will be a fun and educational morning or afternoon for your kindergarten students at the Toy Museum! Facilities are also available onsite for you to have a bag lunch that you bring, should you not wish to take your students to a separate stop for lunch.
