Random Thoughts: Change, Primary Sources & Other Stuff

Doors Open Milwaukee! I didn’t know this exsited in back yard!

Posted on: September 24, 2011

Doors Open Milwaukee, an event planned to get people into over 100 historic buildings, museums, corporate offices, hotels, breweries, homes and more is happening this weekend.    The exciting event is an opportunity for folks to see places we don’t always take the time to visit and learn about their community.  The organizers  describe Doors Open Milwaukee as   ” like getting a free backstage pass to areas you seldom see – from U.S. Bank’s 41st floor observation deck to Bradley Center locker rooms, from behind the curtains at the Pabst Theater to an up-close look at the Jones Island Water Reclamation Facility to see how Milorganite is made.”  http://doorsopenmilwaukee.org/     Kathleen Dunn discussed the event with listeners on her September 23 Wisconsin Public Radio program.

It’s local history on parade! Primary sources are right around the corner!

What’s in your backyard?  What can your back yard treasures add to your classroom and student learning?
