Grade 4 recently visited Her Side of the Story: Tales of Pioneer Women, the newest exhibit at the Society of California Pioneers.
Among the treasures in The Society of California Pioneers archives are rare, first person narratives by pioneer women. After uniting to ensure that future generations could recognize, and would acknowledge, the role women played in the formation of the state, The Association of Pioneer Women of California collected and preserved the experiences of its members. Bound in an unpublished, handwritten book, their remarkable stories are the foundation of this museum exhibition and online resource for teachers.
Grade 4 Social Studies curriculum delves into American History and Geography, Westward Expansion, and History from the Female Perspective, making the excursion a wonderful fit with our studies.
