NEW ONLINE LESSON PLAN NOW AVAILABLE

The National Register of Historic Place's Teaching with Historic Places (TwHP) examines one style of European influenced log cabin in their newest online lesson plan, "Log Cabins in America: The Finnish Experience". This lesson can be used by educators and students in teaching about the development of the early colonies, trans-Appalachian settlement, or late 19th- and early 20th-century immigration. The lesson uses the distinctive features of log cabins built by Finnish homesteaders in Idaho and explains how Finns and Swedes influenced the techniques used for these buildings. The buildings nominated in this thematic group were constructed by members of the Finnish settlement in the area of Long Valley, Idaho, between 1900 and 1930. They include log homestead cabins, houses, and saunas; log and frame barns; and the frame Elo school and Elo schoolteacher's cottage. Using readings, maps, visual images and other online materials, the lesson encourages further student research into their own locality to find out what kind of folk housing was prevalent in their own community. This, and other online lesson plans can be found at www.cr.nps.gov/nr/twhp/
