How To Use the Virtual Classroom:
The Strawbery Banke curriculum offers an academic context for a visit to the historical museum. In order to create a more comprehensive and meaningful learning experience, we have created pre-visit, during visit and post-visit resources for both students and teachers. These are located along the top of this page.
The virtual classroom also provides student-friendly descriptions of the various buildings, exhibits and historical perspectives associated with the Strawbery Banke Museum. In most cases, these are accompanied by printable handouts to use in the classroom.
