History On Wheels PDF Print

"History on Wheels" is a free educational program developed by the Nevada Historical Society Docent Council to bring Nevada History directly into the classroom. Presented by one of our trained docents, each program lasts approximately one hour and combines a slide show with hands-on materials. The program is adaptable to different grade levels, and is an excellent supplement to 4th and 7th grade State History curriculums.





Topics include:

  • Native Americans                                                  
  • Immigrants
  • Mountain Men and Fur Trappers
  • Mining and Miners
  • Children in Early Nevada
