Gift of History Program

The Gift of History is an educational program designed to make history come alive for Orange County’s third graders. Every third grade student in Orange County is invited to take part in an 8 week Integrated Unit of Instruction, year round activities, final project, and an annual event at Angel Stadium.

During the event they are given a history book on the County (entitled Nothing Rhymes with Orange) and are treated to an hour‐long program designed to illustrate that history is alive and all around them – from the buildings they see, to the streets they drive on, to the parks they play at, to the dynamic examples of leadership that show they can achieve anything if they believe in themselves.
