Teacher Hints:

Many of the activities and lessons have a component that uses the Postal Museum’s primary source website “Arago.”  It can serve as a very useful tool for you and your students to explore the depth of primary sources.  Use the “Navigating Arago” PowerPoint to guide you and your students in using the special features in Arago.  Learning how to use the “My Collection Feature” (pg 19 of the PowerPoint) can help you and your students complete the web activity in Lesson 1.
