Many resources for educators are available on the Mississippi Department of Archives and History website, including distance learning opportunities and our Learning Lagniappes, lessons that guide students through the Digital Archives. Also find information about the Traveling Trunks program, where trunks filled with educational materials, reproductions, artifacts, and lessons related to a specific theme or topic can be shipped to your classroom.
The Mississippi Department of Archives and History Digital Archives are a useful way to bring primary sources from Mississippi history into your classroom.
As part of Mississippi’s largest classroom, the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum offer special programs for students and professional development opportunities for educators. Learn more about professional development opportunities and Mississippi History Day.
