The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement is launching Investigating History, a comprehensive educational outreach program to be offered to Clark County schools.
Funded by the Las Vegas Centennial Commission, this program will introduce students to the topics of Las Vegas history, constitutional law and criminal justice through interactive standards-based classroom and auditorium presentations.
Designed for 4-12 grade students, the program will be presented by Museum educators and will support the fulfillment of national and state curriculum standards.
All lesson plans will include a visit to school by a Museum educator, as well as access to trunks containing historical objects, images, reproduced documents, and activities to help bring historical topics to life.
Within each trunk, a differentiated curriculum will allow teachers to select particular topics and activities in order to create customized experiences for their students.
