Villa Finale, a National Trust Historic Site in San Antonio, Texas, recognizes that the younger generation already has a place in historic preservation. So the team worked with Sylvia Gonzalez, manager of collections and interpretation at the site, to publish “The Junior Preservationist Workbook,” which children in San Antonio can use to explore their neighborhood, identifying parts of historic structures and learning how their city’s historic fabric makes it a unique place to live.

Here, we have a few tips on how to formulate your own interactive workbook for burgeoning preservationists.

  2. 2. 1. Determine your objectives. What do you want your junior preservationists to learn from the workbook? Identifying a few objectives will help you focus the chapters and activities in the workbook.
  3. 3. 2. Include a glossary. A preservationist has to have a working knowledge of architectural terms, styles, dates, and construction practices, so include a glossary in the workbook paired with photos or sketches.
  4. 4. 3. Make the workbook active. A workbook that encourages kids to walk around their neighborhood, draw, and write will keep them interested.

  6. 6. 5. Help them think like a preservationist. A junior preservationist workbook can help kids look at their neighborhood in a creative way. Being a preservationist, after all, means you see the built environment differently.
  7. 7. 6. Include opportunities for sleuthing. Ask kids to conduct their own study on a local landmark. Provide space for sketches, photos, and other documentation. Include survey questions for them to fill out.
