The BCHA is opening up the world to Berrien County's youth through our take home acticity kits!  This year's theme is Our Voices Matter and each quarter we will explore one of four communities: African American, Asian American, Latinx American, and Native American.  Each kit will include hands-on activities, information sheets, and more to let them explore the often overlooked stories of our county's past.

These kits are designed for elementary age, approximately 2nd grade to 5th grade.  They meet the State of Michigan standards for Social Studies, Art, and English/ Language Arts.  Additional standards may be met based on the activties involved.
