Dubois Co Museum produce videos on Social Studies Standards for Indiana History students


The Dubois County Museum has prepared five video experiences for third and fourth grade teachers and their students.  These videos especially look at Indiana Social Studies Standards on Indiana History.  Each day museum volunteer Kathy Bachman and museum director Shirley Ray zero in on specific exhibits at the museum to spotlight a standard.   The standards discussed were:  Describe how Native Americans impacted the development of our local community; the founders and early settlers of our county and Indiana; role of local community in the development of the state; important people, events and developments that brought change to our community and immigration and how it enriches our community.  Visit the Dubois County Museum Facebook page to view the videos or go to www.duboiscountymuseum.org and click on the link to the videos.  This pair have been recording small videos since May of the wide variety of collections found in the museum.

Go to the Facebook page to view them.  Many of the videos have been viewed by considerable number of people.  The most viewed video has been the segment the pair did on the Dubois County Daily Herald special Huntingburg Sectional newspaper section from 1966. The newspaper is on display in the Cheering our Champions sports exhibit. Bub Bartley drew the caricatures of the team mascots and when the museum noted that the Ferdinand Crusaders were not drawn, many responded with memories of the team travelling to and participating at Tell City that year in the Tell City sectional.
