History Harvest* is a community-based research project model that affords students opportunities to:
- Develop grade-level appropriate research skills and a sense of historical empathy.
- Conduct original research through analysis of documents and artifacts.
- Utilize primary sources to explore connections among the students, the school community, and the community-at-large.
- Preserve and share previously unknown or under-appreciated artifacts for presentation to the community and for inclusion in a unique digital archive of the “peopleʼs history.”
