Exhibit: Centuries of Childhood: An American Story
In Centuries of Childhood: An American Story, children will connect the stories of American history to their own experiences by learning about the lives of five historical children and their families.
Onatah is a Native American who lives in 1700. She likes to ride in a canoe.
Gregory is a Colonial Apprentice who lives in 1744. He rides a horse to visit his family.
Clara travels west in a covered wagon in 1852.
Jacob is a Jewish Immigrant who comes to America on a ship in 1904.
Michael moves to Chicago on a train in 1947 during the Second Great Migration.
Each historical character will have its own distinct environment based on the time period and location in which they lived. By creating immersive environments with replicas of artifacts, home settings and traditional dress, children and families will feel like they are stepping into another time and place.
