Teaching History Fair

We are excited to share our brand new CMHF Teacher’s Guide! From understanding the different History Fair project categories to writing a thesis statement and building the final project, there is something in this guide to cover every part of the History Fair process. Check it out and let us know what you think! Please note that resources are still being added and future updates to this guide are coming soon!

We are continuing to add to the resources below, so please share your requests with us! If you’re looking for a resource that used to be on our page but don’t see it below, you can find it on our CMHF Resource Archive page.
