Additional Educational Content:
In addition to the introduction of Facebook live streaming, UA Museums will be creating short video and social media content. This will include museum staff recording “Isolation Observations” of the nature they encounter in their own backyards and neighborhoods during Quarantine. Lindsey Gordon, Education Outreach Coordinator at Moundville Archaeological Park, will be sharing information about Moundville Archaeological Park in a series called #MoundvilleMondays. The Gorgas House Museum has also started a “Gorgas House Artifact Series”, which will be a series of social media posts sharing facts about artifacts that can be found inside The Gorgas House Museum.
UA Museums has other educational material for viewing and activity at home! Emmy-winning television program, Discovering Alabama, has free educational resources online including full episodes and Teacher Guides. The Alabama Museum of Natural History has a Teacher’s Corner, which offers educational materials about Fossils, Watersheds, Rocks and Minerals, and Soil. Moundville Archaeological Park has a variety of material on Archaeology!
