To commemorate the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area partnered with WNED to make available the PBS “War of 1812” Educator’s Kit. Included in the kit is the PBS Documentary “War of 1812”, curriculum for the documentary for the elementary, middle school and high school levels and a commemorative poster. Kits have been widely distributed since 2012. To request a kit, while supplies last, please contact email@example.com.
