CHM at Home | Families (April 13)

While we often think of famous people when we think of historymakers, you and your family also have important stories to share! Historians study the history of ordinary people to understand how our city and nation have changed over time. The traditions you practice, the places you live, the work your family members do, and the languages you speak all contribute to the rich diversity of life today and are part of the history each of us make every day. This week, our activities take a personal look at you and your family.

Your home is full of family history! In this scavenger hunt challenge, find objects around the house that spell out your first or last name. Arrange the selected items into a display and share your exhibition on social media using the hashtag #CHMatHomeFamilies.
