Every Attic Tells a Story Following a tour of Clayton, students receive a suitcase full of primary resources and artifacts from different historical eras. Working in small groups, they learn to interpret these primary sources and use deductive reasoning and creative expression to write about the people, places and time their objects represent.

Mansion to Milltown The sharply contrasting lifestyles of the people who built the steel industry in Pittsburgh are highlighted in this unique collaboration between the Frick and the Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area. Students learn how capital, raw materials and geography made Pittsburgh the world’s steel capital, then discover the industry’s impact on environment and society. Following an interactive tour of Clayton, students travel to Homestead to experience millworker and boarding house life.

Thank you for a wonderful day! Seeing medieval art is a fantastic experience, and then making a project is a great way to learn in a hands-on way. Thank you!
