Teacher Resources

   At the Chemung Valley History Museum operated by the Chemung County Historical Society (CCHS) we offer a variety of opportunities for teachers. We’ve worked with students from preschool to adult to provide programs that are interactive and engaging. Programs cover a variety of topics and may include: Haudenosaunee Culture, Civil War, Underground Railroad, Mark Twain and his tools, Victorian Elmira, Colonial Life, Elmira Celebrities, Natural Disasters, and the American Revolution.

Teachers may also work with the Education Director to develop customized tours and programs for their students designed around a specific theme or an exhibit currently on display at the museum. There is a fee for museum tours and programs please contact our Education Director Susan Zehnder for details.

Can’t come to the museum? Then bring resources to your classroom. Borrow a History-To-Go Loan Case or work with the Education Director to develop a customized program for the classroom.
