White Bear Lake Area Curriculum

The White Bear Area Local History Curriculum and resources are designed to help the community learn more about our local history. The curriculum's hands-on design is geared towards the elementary level to help students fulfill local history learning requirements. However, the units and activities can easily be used across several grade levels as a whole or individually, at school or at home. More resources at varying levels are being added frequently so check back often!
