Introducing our new ebook, Palo Alto History for Kids!
Palo Alto History for Kids brings our city's history alive for elementary school students. Written by former Duveneck Elementary School teacher Matt Bowling, this ebook features scavenger hunts, projects, trips and games which add a new dimension to the city history that 3rd graders study in Palo Alto elementary schools.
Topics include the Baylands, muralist Greg Brown, the Bol Park donkeys, the California Avenue civic "art gallery" and much more. Most activities call for students to visit the places mentioned in the book in order to take photographs, find clues or do other related projects.
