It Happened Here: NJ

New Jersey proudly celebrated its 350th anniversary throughout 2014. To ensure the commemoration’s legacy lived on for years to come, the New Jersey Historical Commission, along with its partners in education and media, joined forces to create “It Happened Here: New Jersey”* – an invaluable educational resource and accompanying video series.

From the innovations of Edison to the historic Revolutionary War victories of General George Washington and the Continental Army to trailblazers such as Paul Robeson and Alice Paul and so much more, the lessons are conveniently aimed at a diverse student population ranging from elementary to high school. Better yet, the educational resources have been meticulously constructed to meet the latest statewide curriculum standards.
