The Ohio: Sense of Place theme allow students to learn about all aspects of Ohio from the ancient past to the modern including geologic history, natural history, biology, geography, history, culture, language, art, and music. The goal of Sense of Place is to help students understand how the region has changed through time as the result of a variety of external and internal influences. Knowledge of from where we have come is critical to understanding where we are going and vital to future politicians, scholars, scientists, and the public.
