Designed for the Classroom
A crucial component of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum’s mission is providing education on the senselessness of violence – reinforcing that it is never a successful way to effect change. In an effort to share the lessons learned here, the following collection of in-depth lesson plans have been developed for your use. These include character development in Respect, Resilience and Responsibility – and are as relevant to students today as they were in 1995.
Check out our newest lesson! The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum is where the children of Mayor David Holt, George and Maggie, began their journey of understanding the impact of the Oklahoma City Bombing. They were inspired to share what they learned with other students.
Before you start these lesson plans, watch this overview of the Oklahoma City bombing and the tremendous efforts from first responders, investigators and volunteers that followed.
