Let’s Do History!

Smithsonian Presents:  Object-Based Learning and Museum Education Strategies

Location: VIRTUAL
January 25, 2022, 4 – 6 p.m. EST


The Kentucky Historical Society is a proud Smithsonian Affiliate, and we are excited to offer a workshop on how to use Smithsonian National Museum of American History (NMAH) collections in your classroom. Participants will discover how museum objects and works of art broaden perspectives, reveal silenced stories, and make relevant connections to our world today.


NMAH educators will model teaching strategies to implement with students, both online and in the classroom, as well as introduce the Smithsonian Learning Lab:  a free, online platform designed to share digital museum resources in order to create interactive learning experiences. These resources can help teachers engage students in deeper thinking and support content learning across disciplines.  Several Learning Labs feature artifacts from the Kentucky Historical Society. Grades K-12. Two hours PD credit. FREE.
