Welcome to The Huntington’s education website, Exploring the California Missions, created for teachers and fourth grade students.

Using the lens of California Mission history, this suite of lessons is intended to help teachers and students develop the critical skill set needed to work successfully with primary sources across any subject matter and supports Common Core State Standards.

This website was produced in conjunction with the exhibit Junípero Serra and the Legacies of the California Missions.

The Huntington provides many resources for educators. Please visit our Education Home Page.
