Virtual Field Trip with the Smithsonian American Art Museum

In late February our TLC was lucky enough to participate in a virtual field trip with the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C.

The TLC had just begun their social studies unit on Native Americans, so it was perfect timing for one of the volunteers at the museum to give a presentation on the Native American art that is showcased in their museum.

It was a really nice kick-off to our unit and such a cool opportunity for students to talk to an expert in this field.

Our TLC students had wonderful questions and offered a lot of great discussion to the presentation. It is cool to think that because of the technology and collaboration we have in our schools we were able to meet with someone a couple thousand miles away to participate in such a unique presentation. 

Thank you to the Smithsonian for working with our little island schools!
