New Videoconference Lesson on Building the Erie Canal

Here’s a new videoconference from the Albany Institute of History & Art:

Building the Erie Canal
(for grades 3-8th)
Using primary documents and works of art, this videoconference will help students look back in time to understand the work that went into building the Erie Canal and the natural and political barriers that were overcome to accomplish its construction.  The lesson will also examine the importance of the Erie Canal for trade and transportation throughout the country. Cost: $125.00

During these videoconferences, New York State certified teachers use objects, images and inquiry-based teaching methods to engage students in lessons that focus on art and history. Students are active participants in the lesson; they observe, analyze and express their ideas about objects and images presented.

To schedule contact the Institute’s Barbara Collins at (518) 463-4478, ext. 405 or by e-mail at collinsb@albanyinstitute.org. New Links members, contact me, Rebecca Morrison, to sign up.
