Open To: all teachers.
Opportunity at a Glance: Join the American Museum of Natural History for an evening celebrating the temporary exhibition ¡Cuba!. View a re-creation of Zapata wetland; a reconstructed cave environment; and live lizards, boas, and frogs at the exhibition, network with other educators, and gather resources on how to use the exhibit with your students. The exhibition will showcase Cuban culture and life—including art, music, spiritual traditions, celebrations, food, and farming. A boulevard evoking urban street life will invite visitors to stroll, sit, and discover Cuban culture through music, dance performances, and a variety of interactive experiences. You will receive Educator Guides and related activities that provide tools to align science content with Common Core State Standards in ELA for reading and writing.
