Elementary School Distance Learning Programs

Videoconference programs are available Tuesday–Thursday and must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. We can accommodate up to three programs a day, over two days, per school. Due to demand, we cannot accommodate individual program requests for more than three sessions. However, we can connect with multiple classes during each program session and will work with you to develop an optimal program schedule.

Programs align with national social studies standards and Common Core State Standards. Teacher guides include pre- and post-program lessons.

For more information or to schedule your free program, email us at distancelearning@nara.gov.
