Chana Senesh Time Capsule Mission

What can you learn about someone’s personality, interests, culture, and history through objects they collect and were collected about them?

Introduce learners to Chana Senesh through an interactive, engaging learning experience that helps them see that history is about real people and that history is personal. Learners go on a mission, looking through artifacts from Senesh's life in order to unlock her story in a new way.
