Teacher & student resources

Welcome teachers and students! We hope that you find this website informative and useful. The Missouri Valley Special Collections reaches out to classrooms throughout the Kansas City metro area and beyond by offering classroom visits, curriculum materials, in-service opportunities and virtual resources.

The MVSC is committed to providing educational programming for teachers and students by promoting local Kansas City history through a variety of resources which include personal papers, letters, diaries, maps, and many other primary source documents.

As the staff of the MVSC plans future educational programming, we hope to identify teacher’s needs and provide services to all social studies teachers in grades K-12.

Check back often to see what we're doing, and please send us your ideas and suggestions! New programs are currently under development. Please continue to watch this site for updates.

If you would like to schedule a classroom visit to learn about the resources available at the MVSC or schedule a research tour, please contact Michael Wells at MichaelWells@kclibrary.org or 816-701-3642.
