Virtual field trips at the Tenement Museum immerse students into the past through 360° images, video, and primary sources. On their virtual visit, students explore history through the stories of real people and see how their own stories are part of history. Immigration and migration are the foundation for all programs, and museum educators connect the themes of belonging, community building, and cultural adaptation in programming to create entry points for students of all identities and experiences.
Programs are adapted for students from 1st grade through 12th grade and led by a museum educator over Zoom for an interactive, inquiry-based experience flexible to every classroom style. All virtual field trips at the Tenement Museum are aligned with the National Education Standards, the C3 framework, and multi-state Social Studies Scope and Sequence.
