Smithsonian Offering Free New Resource
March 4, 2020
The development of language is part of the development of the personality, for words are the natural means of expressing thoughts and establishing understanding between people.
-Maria Montessori

Smithsonian’s Open Access Platform is bucking the tide of paid and advertised content in a huge way and includes resources for lesson plan development. From a standpoint of respecting children, valuing beauty, and promoting STEAM thinking, this is an important new resource for educators. Here’s how Smithsonian describes their offering:

Welcome to Smithsonian Open Access, where you can download, share, and reuse millions of the Smithsonian’s images—right now, without asking. With new platforms and tools, you have easier access to nearly 3 million 2D and 3D digital items from our collections—with many more to come. This includes images and data from across the Smithsonian’s 19 museums, nine research centers, libraries, archives, and the National Zoo.”
