Our Curriculum

Welcome to the National First Ladies’ Library online curriculum.

The curriculum includes lessons plans for all grade levels focusing on history and including First Ladies. State and National standards are listed with each lesson plan.

  • Our lesson plans link to a timeline which should prove invaluable for educators. This timeline and the lesson plans include these categories:
    • science/medicine/inventions/technology;
    • Education/arts/letters/ideas; Law/politics/government/war;
    • sports/popular culture; economics/discover/ daily life;
    • notable births/deaths and lives of the First Ladies.
