The Atchafalaya Heritage Area has been designated by Congress as a National Heritage Area.
The teacher guide contains pre-visit activities to introduce students to primary and secondary sources with the Bio in a Box activity and the Be a History Detective activity. The post-activity is an oral presentation by students of a primary source that reveals something of interest about the history of the student or the student’s family.
The museum booklet will be utilized by students when they become historian investigators locating artifacts in the museum galleries. Students will complete an artifact cataloging form on the artifact giving identification information of the artifact, historical perspective of the artifact, and the contemporary significance of the artifact.
