SchoolAt the Sylvania Historical Village, the history you read about in textbooks becomes a vibrant learning experience full of activities for students and teachers to see and do. Our programs cover a wide variety of Ohio academic standards including inter-disciplinary curriculum. Subjects including social studies, language arts, math and science are all incorporated into your visit. Students get the perfect mix of learning, adventure and fun all in a scenic and safe environment where our dedicated staff and volunteers are always on hand ready to help you.

The Sylvania Historical Village offers programs and group tours for scout troops, senior centers and private organizations, as well as elementary schools.

Educational programs allow school children a unique glimpse into the area's history.  Sylvania Historical Village hosts three regular programs for elementary school classes, designed to aid educators in teaching social studies to students primarily in grades 2 - 5. Volunteers in period costume provide a day of activities. Children bring their own bag lunches.

Every program is customized for the grade level, teacher curriculum and school-specific day (start to dismissal). All programs integrate visits to the log home, one-room school and blacksmith and carpentry shop. Subject matter and hands-on activities are designed to synchronize with strands from the Ohio proficiency tests Achievement Assessments and State of Ohio grade-specific social studies standards.


Upon arrival each teacher will receive a packet with their schedule for the day. In the packet will also be a sheet for gathering information about the pioneer to use in post visit activities. There also will be other sheets suggesting post visit activities.
