Teacher Workshop: Bringing the History of Money to Early Elementary Audiences (In Conversation with the Smithsonian)
How can we make the history of money across world cultures meaningful to young learners? How can interactive experiences and object investigations make financial literacy accessible? Join Orlando Serrano, manager of youth and teacher programs at the National Museum of American History (NMAH), and Ellen Feingold, curator at the NMAH, for a conversation about the development process for Really BIG Money, a new numismatics exhibit for K-2 graders. We will reflect on the inspiration for the exhibit, discuss challenges for creating engaging and educational exhibits that are accessible for young learners, and share resources for you to use with your learning communities.
Participants will receive 1 CTLE hour
