Point your students toward our new Smithsonian Education Students site! This fun and educational site brings American art, history, science, and culture to life. All content is based on Smithsonian research and collections.
The Smithsonian's online IdeaLabs are dynamic and interactive learning sites for children. Your students can learn about American presidents, relive the Apollo 11 space mission, explore treasures from the Smithsonian's collections, and more.
Send your students behind the scenes to explore the Secrets of the Smithsonian. Are the bones of the Smithsonian's founder really buried in the Smithsonian Castle? Is the world's largest diamond cursed? Each story is a fun and fascinating look at the history of the world’s largest museum complex.
This suggested reading page features educational books for your family's home library. Smithsonian experts—historians, curators, researchers, and scientists—contributed their expertise to each title. Online ordering information is also provided.
