Los Alamos History Museum’s Virtual History Adventures Series Starts This Week


Looking for fun activities for your elementary school child? Start out on History Adventures this
week! The Los Alamos History Museum is sharing fun, hands-on activities and adventures every
week this month at http://WWW.LosAlamosHistory.org.Childrens_Programs

History Adventures kicks off this week with an exploration of “What is History?” Explore
what’s changed in Los Alamos over the years, and what things have (maybe surprisingly!) stayed
the same. Follow the historic walking tour in downtown Los Alamos for an introduction to our
local history, and your child can pick their favorite stop on the tour—or brainstorm a historic
location they’d like to add to the tour! Your child will also get a chance to learn what it’s like
behind the scenes in a history museum and get to make their own mini museum about any topic
they’re passionate about. Everything you need to get started is in the free History Adventures pdf
activity packet.

There are five different themes to explore, beginning with this week. Every week there will be an
outdoor adventure, a hands-on activity that lets kids make history, and a photo challenge to spark
kids’ creativity. We’ll share updates each week in June with information about that week’s
History Adventures theme. All the activities are available now, so if you’re excited and want to
try them sooner, go at your own pace! We’d love to see the connections you make with
history—share photos from your family’s History Adventures and tag us @LosAlamosHistory
on Facebook or Instagram.
