Learning Activities

We are living through history right now, and future generations will want to know: “What was life like in 2020 and 2021?” Maine libraries are creating an online, living time capsule of these times, and we want your thoughts and experiences to be included!

Check out these self-guided activities to learn about primary sources and how to document your experiences for the future. The materials you create today will become the historical record of tomorrow.

These activities are also available as lesson plans.
