New! Interactive Video
After taking your class through the Moore Family Story lesson, consider how a 19th-century Irish immigrant family kept their traditions alive through treasured personal objects from the point of view of Bridget Moore.
A Tenement Museum costumed interpreter plays Bridget, a real woman who immigrated to the United States from Ireland in 1863 in the aftermath of the Irish potato famine. Explore her new home and learn about how she feels connected to her Irish culture through real artifacts with personal meaning.
This “choose-your-own-adventure” style interactive video for grades 3 – 12 works great as a comprehension and connection review exercise to our Meet Bridget virtual field trip!
