Schoolhouse
Our reconstructed, historic one-room schoolhouse located on CMU's campus, is also available for use by teachers to provide their students first-hand experience with the atmosphere and accouterments associated with a schoolhouse of the early 1900's.

Uncovering Michigan's Prehistoric Past
Warm coral ocean, glaciers, mastodons and Paleoindians are all part of Michigan's prehistory.  How do we know this? Learn about different kinds of fossils and examine them to see why we believe these are part of Michigan prehistory.  Discover the importance of bogs in preserving the evidence. Click here for information on extended activities that coordinate with the tour.
 
Michigan Through the Ages
Students will travel through time in Michigan beginning with the Native Americans before the arrival of the Europeans.  They will visit a fur trader's cabin and see the beginnings of the Columbian Exchange.  They will experience the life of the Michigan pioneers and lumberjacks in a lumber camp.
