About Sharon’s History
A major portion of our work involves children and families. We offer an integrated history and civics curriculum presented on-site, off-site and online, developed in conjunction with faculty at the Sharon Center School and offered free of charge to students from pre-K to 8th grade.
Additionally, we want our website to be a resource for students to learn more about Sharon’s history and research methods in general. Our pages on Primary Sources and useful Publications & Databases are a good place to start. Of course, we encourage students to explore the entire website, which is rich with high quality historical research and primary source material.
If you would like to arrange a field trip to the Sharon Historical Society or you’re interested in having one of our professionals or volunteers present a topic in Sharon’s history, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We would be happy to work with you to set something up!
Get lesson plans and worksheets, arrange a field trip, and read handy summaries of topics in Sharon history.
One of the great things about the Internet is its ability to transmit primary source documents right into our classrooms! Archives and museums are constantly digitizing photos, diaries, notes, manuscripts, and more.
