Join us in OHOF Adventures as we learn about Oklahomans and their impact on the world around them! Each adventure is a fun-filled experience where you can learn all there is to know about Oklahomans in each field! Check out individual class descriptions below.
OHOF Adventures are delivered live via Zoom. Each program is designed to teach students about various topics and their connections to Oklahoma. Each adventure has a theme, features several Oklahoma Hall of Fame members, vocabulary, and details about the topic. Adventures meet Oklahoma Academic Standards and employ engagement techniques such as polls, call backs, and verbal questions to keep students’ attention. Classroom experiences can be scheduled with OHOF educators no less than two weeks in advance.
All classes meet Oklahoma Academic Standards and can be delivered to groups on individual or group devices live via Zoom. Classes are geared for ages 8-12, but may be enjoyed by younger or older students.
