Introducing Tennessee History for KidsINARS!
To help students, teachers and parents deal with the challenges of "distant learning," Tennessee History for Kids is creating KidsINARS. Some of these short webinars will explain the TN History for Kids organization (booklets and website), but most will be content-specific.

So far we have uploaded:

1. Mountains, Mines and Mills: The Greatest Primary Source in Tennessee History. This fascinating 3-part KidsINAR is about Matthew Rhea's 1832 map of Tennessee. It targets all students, fifth grade and older.

Click here for Part One of Mountains, Mines and Mills and here for the quiz that goes along with Part One.

Click here for Part Two of Mountains, Mines and Mills and here for the quiz that goes along with Part Two.

Click here for Part Three of Mountains Mines and Mills and here for the quiz that goes along with Part Three.

2. Slavery in Tennessee, a sobering half-hour long presentation about what newspaper advertising provesĀ  about slavery in Tennessee, and targets students from eighth grade and older. (It is NOT intended for elementary school students!)
Click here for the quiz that goes along with this presentation.
3. An Introduction to TN History for Kids, a 12-minute KidsINAR.

We will producing many more of these KidsINARS in subsequent days.
The next one will target younger students (grades 1, 2 and 3) and be about Tennessee geography. We will also do one for grades 5 and above about Tennessee's statehood era (the 1790s).

Stay tuned!

The booklets, include:
