Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites

Quality Core Curriculum Objectives used by the State of Georgia have been correlated with key concepts and activities students may encounter in a visit to Howfyl State Historic Site. Those for social studies in grades 4, 8 and 11 have been identified. The staff will be happy to assist in the development of lessons and activities which focus on other content areas as well.
