This educational package, for use in the classroom and by families who love to learn, is part of a vibrant project that was designed to stimulate curiosity about Lake Champlain's history. Although the lake is an international treasure, not enough of the region's history is widely known. Through research, archeology and film, the Lake Champlain Voyages of Discovery: Bringing History Home project has produced materials to enrich educational opportunities.

Watch the film and use the learning activities to discover an exciting, more complete understanding and to build bridges between the people who came before us and today's communities. Learning activities and resources include background information, historic maps, activities tailored to thematic chapters, suggested reading and related websites.
