Website: Smithsonian Education Resources

joshua treeSmithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies Education Resources

The online Smithsonian Education page is a gateway to the institution’s educational resources and materials, with offerings for teachers, students, and families.

The Teachers’ section offers lesson plans, resources, and information on field trips and professional development, as well the opportunity to subscribe to Smithsonian in Your Classroom, a journal for elementary and middle school educators.

The mission of the Smithsonian Education and Museum Studies is to increase the Smithsonian Institution’s impact as a national educational organization.

The Center has created a long-term alliance with state education officials that has become the basis for several collaborative teacher training and resource development projects in a wide range of subjects. The Center also manages pan-institutional functions such as internships, heritage month celebrations, school tour programming, and the collection and analysis of data on Smithsonian education programs. The site includes lesson plans and a searchable resource library.

Please see the Website for more information.
