Resources for Educators

We can arrange tours, activities and special programs at the museum that fit your curriculum. Additionally, the following resources can be used in the classroom or home to educate students on the contributions and experiences of Jews in the American Military:

Lessons and Activities

More lessons and activities based on common core standards coming soon. Conduct Oral Histories. Having students interview Jewish (or other) veterans is a great way to learn more about a time period and conflict. We recommend it for grades 10 and above or for younger students with adult supervision. The Library of Congress Veterans History Project is the most comprehensive program for veterans’ oral histories. Seehttp://www.loc.gov/vets/youth-resources.html for more resources. If you interview, a Jewish veteran, please contact the museum so we can place a copy in our archives.
