Lesson Plans

The primary aim of the West Baton Rouge Museum’s Education Department is to offer educators creative, engaging hands-on strategies and resources for addressing curriculum requirements through the incorporation of culturally and historically relevant examples. It is our desire to be an esteemed source of education and information about the area’s regional history. Here you can access lesson plans for teachers and educators that focus on topics relevant to our local history, to sugarcane production and to the sugar industry which has so richly shaped that history.   We encourage you to download the PDFs and explore this rich history with us.
