Heaching the Hudson Valley

Teaching the Hudson Valley

Launched in 2003, Teaching the Hudson Valley (THV) helps educators and students discover and appreciate the natural, historical and cultural treasures of the Hudson Valley. THV programs foster collaboration among schools, museums, parks, historic sites, art galleries, libraries, colleges, nonprofits and other groups. They offer a growing collection of free K-12 lesson plans uses significant Valley sites to teach math, science, history, art and other important school subjects.

Teaching the Hudson Valley was created by the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Sites and partners -- the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area/Greenway, NYS DEC's Hudson River Estuary Program, and Hudson River Valley Institute at Marist College -- as a place for educators to find and share free lesson plans and activities (,com_units/Itemid,12/) about our region.

THV also built a great calendar (,com_jcalpro/Itemid,69/extmode,week/). View it by day, week, month, or type of event -- look for exhibits, festivals, outdoor activities, performances, and more. Lesson plans and activities submitted by educators are available to enhance your own visits to many of the Hudson Valley region's special places.
