For Teachers

Welcome Educators! From 7,000 years ago to the 1900s people mined Keweenaw copper. Native peoples made copper into tools and trade items. Investors and immigrants arrived in the 1800s in a mineral rush. A thriving industry developed. Though the mines have since closed, their mark is still visible on the land and people. Here you will find field trip guidance, lesson plans, a list of guest speakers, online galleries & videos, a suggested reading list and announcements for teacher workshops.
