Freedom Trail® Official Historic Sites, Museum of African American History, and Freedom Trail Foundation Distance Learning Resources
The Freedom Trail® and Black Heritage Trail® have plenty of opportunities for everyone to keep learning and experiencing Boston’s history remotely. To serve the public while spending time away from schools and work places, the Freedom Trail® official historic sites, Museum of African American History, and Freedom Trail® Foundation will continue to provide existing and have created new on-line distance learning resources to bring history into homes.
From virtual tours to hands-on-activities and contests, on-line exhibits and games, educator resource kits and classroom lesson plans, to an on-line collections catalogue and lectures, webinars and more, Boston’s historic sites are committed to assisting people at home by providing free engaging materials for learners of all ages. In addition, the Freedom Trail® Foundation’s This Day in History videos provides mini-history lessons 365 days per year and is offering the Hear History: Audio Guide of the Freedom Trail MP3 download, free for a limited time, for people to enjoy at home.
History organizations along Boston’s iconic Freedom Trail and Black Heritage Trail will post daily about content and activities via their social media channels using Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram while their websites provide constant valuable resources. Additionally, the Freedom Trail Foundation has created a special website page with a list of distance learning resources to help teachers and parents teach their students and for those interested in knowing more about Boston’s historic treasures and our country’s history.
