Timelines and Tours – 4th grade

Students use museum exhibits to gather facts for a giant timeline covering over 200 years of Ohio history. Patterns emerge to show that history is multi-layered and relevant to our current lives. The Garfield home tour compares the lives of the Garfield children in the 1880s (no indoor plumbing or electricity!) with those of students today. An optional trip to Lake View Cemetery leads students on a tour of the Garfield monument, along with memorials to other historical figures in Northeast Ohio.

  • Program time: 2 hours (Garfield site only)
    5 hours (Garfield site + Lake View Cemetery)
  • Each 4th grader will be issued an Every Kid Outdoors pass, good for family admission to national parks and federal lands through summer, 2024
  • Title 1 schools receive free transportation.
Contact Park Ranger Allison Powell for details and scheduling.
