A Closer Look at Ike is a great learning guide for elementary groups to engage with specific photographs and artifacts as they tour the current Eisenhower exhibitory. An IKEducator will introduce and conclude the activity.
The Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum is home to thousands of primary sources linked by their relevance to the life and times of Dwight D. Eisenhower. However each of these artifacts, documents, or photos has its own secret life, its own story.
This exhibit guide asks upper elementary - middle school students to analyze the artifacts on display and consider what individual stories they may have and how they reveal the bigger picture of Ike's life.
