Welcome to Boston National Historical Park's Teacher Resource Center. Below is a list of useful resources to guide educators and students in understanding Boston's involvement in the American Revolution and its role in supporting the U.S. Navy for 174 years.
The following lesson plans and teacher guides can either be used with Boston National Historical Park education programs, or for those teachers and home schoolers who are either not able to make it to Boston National historical Park or wish to bring their class on their own.
In addition to the park's lesson plans, Boston National Historical Park is featured in Teaching with Historic Places, a program of the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places. Visit this link for The Battle of Bunker Hill: Now We Are at War to learn how this American Revolution battle spurred colonial unity and sparked the formation of the Continental Army.
