Education Programs

Flagg Township Museum provides educational programs for individuals, schools, scouts, and groups at the museum and in the classroom.

The museum has created learning partnerships with local school and community groups and offers enrichment programs during after school and summer programs on a wide variety of topics.
  • The museum has partnered with the HUB Project through the Rochelle School District, a program for elementary and middle school students. 
 
Many of our programs meet the educational learning standards for the State of Illinois. Programs have been created specifically for teachers based on their requests.

Museum staff is also able to visit classrooms with programs and artifacts from the museum for those classes who are unable to visit the museum.

Visiting the classroom helps students prepare for what they will see when they visit the museum.
 
Teachers are encouraged to check out our History Education Trunks to use in their classrooms.

History Education Trunks include Rochelle History, Life and School in 1900, Transportation on the Lincoln Highway, The Role of Agriculture, Quill Pen, and Hispanic Heritage in Rochelle.
