Staying Connected with JMM: Here to Support Educators

Posted on March 26, 2020 by

JMM cares about learning and supporting you and your students.

Dear Educators,

Thank you for being a part of the JMM community. We hope you and your students are safe and well during this challenging time. While the JMM is currently closed, we are committed to ensuring that our educational resources are available for you.

We admire your tenacity as you continue to teach students at home and assemble learning packets that align with the curriculum and course study. Our educator’s guides include activities and resources that can be adapted for learning at home.

We admire how many of you are using technology to keep students engaged. We would be happy to have an Educator virtually visit your classroom. Contact our School Program Coordinator, Paige, at pwoodhouse@jewishmuseummd.org to learn more.

Our team has been busy creating activities and resources in connection to our upcoming exhibition, Jews and Space: Members of the Tribe in Orbit. Explore our wondernauts.org website filled with informal learning activities – connecting to space, history, visual art, technology, and English language arts.

We are here to help you, as you develop unique ways to connect with your students. Just reach out anytime.
