Welcome to the Education page at the International Museum of the Horse!
Below, we have downloadable PDFs for use in the classroom and for the family. Organized by age range, these resources can be used as a supplement to curriculum or a wonderful lesson plan for a trip to visit our museum. We are always updating this site with more information for teachers. If you would like to request a resource packet for your class, please contact Melissa Mullins at melissaR.email@example.com.
We'd love to have your class visit our museum at the Kentucky Horse Park! If you'd like to schedule a field trip, please contact Hope McDowell at 859-259-4225.
Keep checking in for more materials for teachers! We are revamping our site for the 2013-2014 academic year!
We are happy to announce that teachers and schools can now request to check out our Portable Paddocks, or object-based lesson plans. All of our lessons meet Kentucky and National Common Core Standards. Unfortunately, these lesson plans are only available for those in central Kentucky, as they come with artifacts to teach the lesson. Keep checking our site for updates. Below we have the object-based lesson plans available.
Learn to Measure! A lesson for Second Graders
The Horse's role during the American Revolutionary War (8th Grade)

Please call Melissa Mullins at 859-259-4232, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a lesson plan or for more information.
