Sacramento County History Day

As part of NHD, Sacramento County History Day (SCHD) allows students to participate in authentic, challenging, project-based learning that lasts an entire school year.  Students select topics and research them as historians would – by using libraries, archives, museums and oral history interviews. Their analysis and interpretations come together with the facts and evidence they've gathered to become their final projects. Learn more...
