OHA is here to keep you entertained, engaged, and learning! Every day of April 2020 OHA featured a different person, place, event, or movement that correlated to that day’s letter!
This page houses all PDFs and links needed to learn whichever theme you are interested in! Included in each letter’s packet is a short history of the person, place, or event featured, additional research links, and an activity to keep everyone active.
These stories & activities are geared for historians of ALL AGES.
If you partake in any of the activities listed, please make sure to share any images or videos with us using #ABCsinHistory and #OHAfromHome.
