ETHS offers multiple programs for museum and classroom learning. All student programs are rooted in literacy, align with current state social studies standards, and can be adjusted to accommodate various grade levels.

Grades 5 – 12

Objects Over Time

Students “read” or analyze an object from the ETHS Education Collection. Working collaboratively with classmates, students use prior knowledge to place their objects on a timeline.

Grades K – 4

Discovery Boxes

Students explore nine boxes of artifacts to learn about the people who lived in the “frontier” era. Using their observations, students present who they think owned the objects in each box.

Grades 4 – 12


Students engage with sources relating to the Overmountain Men and the Revolutionary War in the area that is now Tennessee.
