Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites

Quality Core Objectives used by the State of Georgia have been correlated with key concepts and activities students may encounter in a visit to Fort King George State Historic Site. Those for social studies in grades 4, 8, and 11 have been identified. The staff will be happy to assist in the development of lessons and activities which focus on other content areas and have included examples of math and art.
