Not Just for Social Studies Anymore!

Fenton History Center welcomes bus tours and provides guided tours by appointment. Walk-in visitors are welcome to tour the museum with a guide booklet. Educational Programs on a variety of topics for schools, “home schoolers” and interested groups are available through the Education Department.

Fenton History Center Educational Programs are an excellent way to enrich English, world Cultures, Home and Careers, History, Art courses, and many more. Fenton History Center Educational Programs utilize local artifacts, documents and photographs to promote the student’s understanding of the concepts presented by our Museum Educators. When possible, the programs employ interactive, multi-sensory activities to enrich the student’s experience.

While it is preferable for students to visit the Fenton Mansion, time and budget constraints do not always allow classes to visit in person. The Moving Museum brings the Fenton’s Educational Programming into the classroom via a Museum Educator. These programs are supplemented with photographs, documents, artifacts and interactive experiences. Programs available in the classroom are indicated with a Moving Museum icon.

The environment and time in which a person lives shapes their daily life, experiences, tastes, habits and chores. Daily life and experiences are also shaped by gender, culture, race and socioeconomic background. By exploring the lives and stories of diverse individuals from Jamestown’s past, students make vivid comparisons to their own lives. The Local Lore Comes Alive program incorporates interactive demonstrations, theatrical performances, reproduction costumes, historical characters, video and role-playing activities. The students will “become” a real person from Jamestown’s past and will receive facsimiles of primary documents, a biographical sketch and a photograph of that person. The program also includes visits to the museum for The Age of Homespun and Victorian Sampler tours. As the culminating activity, students will wear reproduction clothing and perform skits depicting life in early Jamestown.

The Victorian Era was a time of growth and change in Jamestown. Factories opened, people moved into the city to be closer to jobs and businesses, and many large, fancy homes were built. These concepts are introduced by Museum Educators through a tour of the Fenton Mansion’s Victorian-era period rooms, including the Renaissance Revival Drawing Room,, the Family Parlor and Nanny’s Room exhibit. The elaborateness of the period is demonstrated through the study of artifacts such as clothing, furnishings and decorative arts.

A CHILD’S LIFE ONE CENTURY AGO

Standards – 1
1 unit of instruction
Concepts/themes – culture, interdependence, change
45 minutes – 1 hour
In School or at Museum
Fee – $50 per class

Children of today enjoy a full and hectic life. They go to school, play sports, watch television, and chat on the computer. They even do some chores, such as mowing the lawn or emptying the dishwasher. Children of the 19th century never knew the convenience of a dishwasher or power mower. Communication was either through letter writing or face-to-face conversation. How did they survive?!?!? Students will be introduced to the role of the “Nanny” in child-raising and will be encouraged to make comparisons to the toys, clothes, kitchen utensils, and chores of today. Once the “culture shock” has worn off, students will examine many Fenton educational artifacts from the child’s world of the 19th century.

Like any place on earth, the natural features of the landscape shape how and why people settle in a particular location, how they structure their communities, and how those communities evolve over time From prehistoric times through to the present day, chautauqua Lake has been a consistent force in shaping this area, its residents, and its history. This program focuses on the “Golden Age of Chautauqua” 1875 -1910. Slices photographs and artifacts are employed to explore steamboat and trolley travel along the shoreline. Tourist and cultural attractions, such as Celoron Amusement Park and Chautauqua Institution, are studied. Recreational and lake-oriented industries are highlighted.

1 unit of instruction
Concepts/themes – change, culture, places & regions
1 hour
At Museum
Fee – $50.00 per class

The history of chautauqua County tells a story that is specific to Western New York, but also speaks to the history of the entire country. Over the centuries, changes in the area and its people reflect the lives and stories of Native Americans, English settlers, and immigrants. From the county’s early days of farming, to the development of a vibrant trade economy, Chautauqua County is emblematic of broader economic changes that swept through North America. A guided tour of the Fenton Mansion will acquaint students with much of Chautauqua County history from the beginning of the 19th century through the 20th century.

ARTIFACTS AS EVIDENCE

Standards – 1
1 unit of instruction
Concepts/themes – change, critical thinking skills
1 class period / 40 minutes
In School
Fee – $50.00 per class

The objects we use everyday are often taken for granted – a toothbrush, a serving dish, and the electric lights in our homes. We rely on these objects but seldom can we imagine where they first originated, or what life would be like without them. The Fenton History Center’s collection is rich in decorative and utilitarian objects that can be used to tell a story about life in another period of time. By exploring this material culture students are encouraged to compare the past to the present, and think critically about how we use, make and appreciate material culture today. By dealing directly with primary sources, students engage in asking questions, thinking critically, making intelligent inferences, and developing reasoned explanations and interpretations of events in the past and present.

 

PHOTOGRAPHS AS EVIDENCE

1 unit of instruction
Concepts/themes – culture, change, critical thinking skills
1 hour

This program is designed to teach the student to “read” period photographs for historical information. Because visual documents capture moments in time, they can provide evidence of changes over time. Visual documents include evidence about a culture at specific moments in history: it’s customs, preferences, styles, special occasions, work and play. By studying a photograph, the student will make both observable and inferential observations about its content. A Museum Educator will guide the examination using the inquiry process. Photographs from the Fenton collection offer a compelling visual representation of Jamestown’s past.

In the absence of husbands, fathers, brothers and sons, families were left to cope with issues large and small, from the operations of farms and businesses, to the strain put on personal relationships by separation.
