    Smithsonian Resources and Activities

    Filter Fun!
    In this activity from the Smithsonian Science Education Center, student teams will be introduced to the phenomenon of how communities can use materials to filter out pollution in water. At the end of this activity, students will be able to assess materials for their ability to filter out debris.
    Tear Up the Town
    What’s special about where you live? In this art activity from the Hirshhorn Museum, students will create a torn-paper collage inspired by their hometown.
    Living Through History with Social & Emotional Learning Tools
    This offering from the Smithsonian Libraries and the National Portrait Gallery provides social & emotional learning tools to help navigate the impact and feelings of living through big moments in history.
    Writing Label Text for a Museum Portrait
    In this lesson from the National Portrait Gallery, students will use portraits from the museum to create a label that clearly communicates information about each work of art.

    These ideas that I have offered up from the Smithsonian are all activities in learning where one can substitute from another source, where the Smithsonian museum is not available, but still get a similar outcome in enrichment. I would embrace the Filter Fun as a science enrichment, but see where other entries could be used with different subject matter.

    When you access this link, it will take you to a webpage full of Amazon Online Courses, and even link you to pages 2 and 3 of the same source. They are all zero cost courses, which could allow people the opportunity to learn for free while working at other jobs, such as teaching or other jobs in a school district. At the very least, these are links that can be shared with anyone who might be between jobs, or unsure of what they want to do for a job going forward. I almost never turn down the chance to increase my skill sets, especially with a $0 tuition. For people who have been thrown some curve balls due to the pandemic, jobs lost due to businesses going bust, or health impacted in ways that require rethinking the type of jobs they can hold now either because of a shift in who is the major breadwinner, or changes in what jobs can be done after contracting Covid and suffering lingering impacts on one's health due to the long-term impact from damage to the lungs, the heart, the immune system, and so many other possibilities. Any kind of free education and training seems almost too good to be true - but before I wrote it off as a case of wishful thinking, I would have to have a long hard look at the website. Sometimes good things do come to those in need. Best wishes to anyone brave enough to take a chance.

    If you are feeling brave, try this as babystep #2:
