Teaching Tools for the Collection

The materials in the Green 'N' Growing collection provide valuable information about women, children, race relations, education, agriculture, and rural life in North Carolina during the twentieth century. In order to help classroom teachers and their students explore the history North Carolina through 4-H and Home Demonstration materials, the Special Collections Resarch Center had partnered with LEARN NC (no longer active) in developing K-12 lesson plans. While the lesson plans are no longer actively maintained, archived versions are available through the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine.
