New Educator Resources and “Just for Kids” Interactive Learning Experiences!
The Education department here at the Institute of Texan Cultures has recently added a number of fabulous downloadable resources for K-12 teachers to the Education portal on the ITC’s website. From Texas pioneers and cowboys and cattle drives to how to grow your own classroom garden, we have something for everyone! All of our lesson plans and hands-on activities are free of charge and meet TEKS requirements in social studies. Head on over to the website to learn more!
Extra pressed for time or just need a few quick warm-up ideas? Check out our Educator Quick Start Guides! All of our Quick Start Guides are presented in an engaging, visually appealing infographic form and are available for download as PDFs. Learn how to teach with objects, use primary sources in the classroom, and more!
Our brand new “Just for Kids” interactive learning experiences highlight aspects of some of our long-term exhibits here at the Museum. Kids can engage with interactive infographics, exhibit murals, and timelines to learn about archaeology, Native Americans, and life on the cattle drive throughout Texas history! We are also in the process of producing short, educational videos highlighting objects from our exhibits to include in these activities, as well! Stay tuned!
