Florida His­tor­i­cal Sites

Field trips to his­tor­i­cal sites are an excel­lent and excit­ing way for you to enhance your stu­dents’ learn­ing and appre­ci­a­tion for their state’s past. Florida has many beau­ti­fully restored his­tor­i­cal sites through­out the state — one may be in your neigh­bor­hood! You can take your stu­dents here and they can see what life was like 150 years or more ago. These trips are fun, excit­ing, and edu­ca­tional and they are a way to make his­tory come to life for students.

Florida Teacher Resources

We’ve put together sev­eral resources for specif­i­cally for those teach­ing in Florida.

This list of resources was gath­ered in 2011 from actual Florida teach­ers who use in them in their classrooms.

The Florida Sun­shine State Stan­dards are broad state­ments that describe what your stu­dents should know and be able to do at every grade level. They cover seven con­tent areas: social stud­ies, sci­ence, lan­guage arts, health/physical edu­ca­tion, the arts, for­eign lan­guage, and math­e­mat­ics. A Land Remem­bered has been rec­og­nized as an excel­lent tool to use to meet these standards.

For your ref­er­ence and con­ve­nience, you can find them on this page.

A Land Remem­bered Goes To School, our ele­men­tary level teacher guide, has been coor­di­nated with the Sun­shine State Stan­dards, as has the Mid­dle School Teacher’s Guide.

His­tory Time Lines

His­tory time lines pro­vide a record of events in the order of their occur­rence and detail the sequence of related his­tor­i­cal events in chrono­log­i­cal order. They enable a fast under­stand­ing of rel­e­vant and key dates, events, peo­ple and places. We’ve put together an exten­sive col­lec­tion of time lines on Florida and Amer­i­can his­tory here.

Teach­ing With His­tor­i­cal Fiction

Through his­tor­i­cal fic­tion, stu­dents gain more than knowl­edge of his­tor­i­cal facts, they develop an under­stand­ing of the emo­tions and human­ness of his­tory as they iden­tify with a novel’s char­ac­ters. We’ve found two won­der­ful essays we share with you here.
