    While the public may not be able to come to the New York State Museum, the Museum is coming to them with Facebook Live Field Trips every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

    Join scientists, historians and educators behind the scenes of the Museum's exhibitions and collections to highlight interesting finds and facts about New York State history, science and culture. Just a few of the topics viewers can learn about are Ice Age exploration, Adirondack animals and the centennial of the 19th Amendment for women's suffrage. Virtual tours begin at 1:00 p.m. on the State Museum’s Facebook page and are saved on the Museum’s Facebook page for viewing after the live stream.

    NSTA Online Teaching Resources

    Due to the coronavirus pandemic many school districts across the country have decided to close schools and teach online full time. NSTA has compiled a list of resources to assist teachers with this challenge.

    The external resources in this collection have been shared by educators, but have not been reviewed by NSTA. Additional resources from NSTA are also included to provide on-going professional learning experiences. We will continue to add to resources to this collection to support your distance learning needs. Please continue to share with us!

    Zoom: Currently free, easy to use with a computer or smartphone, lots of great features (e.g. whiteboard, screen sharing, chat). There is a learning curve, though, and students would likely need training on how to use it.

    Google Classroom - : Free; highly recommended by many educators; accessible by computer, phone, and even game consoles. Many schools already have Google accounts for students, which makes this easy to access. See the guide for teachers ( and guide for administering assessments ( ).

    Teacher-directed phone calls: Allows teachers to connect with students 1:1, no internet required. Teachers could create a Google Voice phone number ( for students to call and text. Calendly ( ) is a useful tool to quickly schedule 1:1 check-ins.
