Techie Thursdays: Smithsonian Learning Lab

Want to bring the Smithsonian Museum to you and your students?

In my 2nd grade classes they are doing a matter unit. With my co-teaching group, we read a nonfiction book about glass. An add-on to try, could be this video (from the Smithsonian archives!) on Glass Blowing. There are thousands of resources, and it would be a great opportunity to teach: is it a browser, search engine, or source, about primary and secondary sources, along with how to review sources for authority, currency, point of view, purpose, and reliability. 

To help with your search, check out the Getting Started guide

Hope it builds inquiry and inspiration in your classes!
