Man Behind the Myth OUTREACH - In School Version


During a short slide presentation, children find out what really happened on Revere’s midnight ride. In small groups, students examine letters, advertisements and reproduction artifacts, looking for clues about the man behind the myth. Intriguing details emerge about Revere’s personality, contributions to the Revolution, large family, and many business ventures. An interactive tour of Revere’s house completes the program. Pre-visit materials provided.

Outreach programs are presented to one class of students at a time in their classroom or another available space inside your school. A minimum of two and maximum of three programs can be scheduled per day.

For travel to schools beyond Route 495 an additional travel fee will be charged.
