This week’s historic adventure series explores children as part of history – Los Alamos Reporter


Children wrote history in the past and are making history today! This week in History Adventures, take your elementary school child on an exploration of the lives of the children of Los Alamos in the past. The Los Alamos History Museum shares fun and hands-on activities and adventures each week this month with History Adventures at

This week, kids can take a historic walk around Ashley Pond, discovering the kids at Los Alamos Ranch School. Imagine what your walk would be like 100 years ago by comparing the pond today with historic photos from the Ranch School era. Your child will also get creative by inventing their own kind of school, maybe even making a model of what it would look like. The Los Alamos Historical Society also needs your child’s help: they can share photos from the present that will help historians in the future. Understanding what children’s lives are like can be difficult for historians, and it’s a chance for your child to make history! Everything you need to get started is in the Free History Adventures pdf activity pack.

There are five different themes to explore, with a new theme every week in June. Each week there will be an outdoor adventure, a hands-on activity that lets kids do storytelling, and a photo challenge to stimulate children’s creativity. We’ll be sharing updates each week in June with information on this week’s History Adventures theme. All the activities are available now, so if you’re excited and want to try them out sooner, go at your own pace! We’d love to see the connections you make to history: Share photos of your family’s historic adventures and tag us @LosAlamosHistory on Facebook or Instagram.

The Los Alamos Historical Society preserves, promotes and communicates the remarkable history and inspiring stories of Los Alamos and its people for our community, for the global public and for future generations.
