Spanish Colonial St. Augustine: a Resource for Teachers provides content and classroom materials pertaining to Florida’s Spanish colonial heritage. It includes materials on Native American life, early exploration, settlement, missions, Fort Mose, and much more. Everything on this site — artwork, readings, primary sources, etc. — may be reproduced freely for use in the schools.

Teachers can obtain background on Spanish colonial Florida from "Links" and "Readings." For curriculum, consult "Lesson Plans" or design your own lesson using resources from "Readings," "Primary Sources," "Maps," and "Images." A timeline of Florida history is available to guide learning.

Web concept developed from the Landmarks of American History workshop "Between Columbus and Jamestown: Spanish St. Augustine." Creation of this website is a joint project of the Florida Humanities Council and the University of Florida Libraries and the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History, sponsored by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities through its “We the People” initiative.
