Educator Resources

The Frost Place is a class trip destination and, we hope, a destination for educator resources.

Hover over the Educator menu above to find links to the following:

  • Printable Frost biography/timeline with linked poems
  • Frost Lessons/Writing Prompts with poems—lesson ideas /writing prompts for a variety of age levels, with suggested Frost poems
  • Whitman biography—short overview of Whitman as poet of witness
  • Book recommendations/professional development
  • Field Trips—The house museum is a self-guided tour, with artifacts, photographs, and museum cases of Frost memorabilia on display. The Poetry Trail follows a gentle, easy quarter mile walking path through the woods behind the house. The historic Henry Holt Barn has more memorabilia, a small gift shop with locally sourced items and lots of books, and 25-minute video about Frost’s life and work in Franconia, NH. There is a knowledgeable docent on duty who can do a special, age-appropriate educational programs for groups. Please make sure to indicate if you would like the program when you schedule your field trip. We have limited hours during May and June, September and early October, but special arrangements may be possible upon request.
