This new curriculum for elementary and middle school teachers connects children with the history and centennial celebration of the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, the region’s first World’s Fair, which promoted the Northwest’s growing prosperity as a portal to the Pacific. The curriculum is the first project developed through a new education partnership between Heritage 4Culture and aimed at developing a more comprehensive selection of relevant, up-dated, and accessible heritage education resources for Pacific Northwest teachers and students. The curricula may be accessed on HistoryLink’s “Study Aids” page.
