Teacher Resources

Lesson Plans

With Tenement Museum resources, students become historians. Using our teacher-tested lesson plans, students engage in inquiry and learn to use critical thinking to interpret objects, oral histories, and primary sources. These materials can enrich a visit to the Museum, or support classroom activities.

Distance Learning

Coming soon, you can bring the Tenement Museum right into your classroom – virtually. Our new distance learning program debuts in 2019, inviting classrooms across the country to enhance their study of immigration and migration through virtual visits and real time lessons.
