The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum has developed lesson plans for educators using primary source materials from the library’s archives. These purposeful, interactive lessons are tied to Iowa and national curriculum standards in social studies, American history, government and science. This connection between classrooms and the Hoover Library and Museum’s primary sources encourages critical thinking skills and reinforces vocabulary terms, concepts and relevant curriculum materials.
