State Museum Offers New Online Resources for Educators, Caregivers, and Students 

 

In these trying times, educators are seeking out educational resources to engage their students. To support teachers, the New York State Museum has launched a webpage with educational materials. These resources have been created by museum staff to engage students in science, history, and art related to New York State’s past and present. The NYSM Portal to Online Education Resources and Activities (www.nysm.nysed.gov/resources) include the following:  

  • Facebook Live Field Trips 
  • Behind the Scenes with Museum Moments Videos 
  • Online Exhibits 
  • Fun At-Home Activities 
  • Full Lessons 
  • Teacher Guides 
  • Digital Collections 
  • Coloring Sheets 
  • Scavenger Hunts 

 

Additionally, this summer and fall, the New York State Museum is offering educational programming through interactive virtual fieldtrips with a museum educator and will soon have recorded educational programs. For a list of programs and to request a program visit http://www.nysm.nysed.gov/education/group-visits or email nysmeducation@nysed.gov.  

Along with the online resources, New York State Museum Educators are looking for new ways to support classes and educators. Teachers are encouraged to reach out directly to the museum’s staff of Museum Educators at: nysmeducation@nysed.gov or take an online survey to let us know what you are looking for: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=6BbvFeBMw0-S4mp6bI52XtPTLpX7H85EvLfZxs8qmtVUNDJTOFAySExGTjM5TzNYSEQ3UTJTME9IWi4u
