A new hub has been launched to help students learn about the Erie Canal.
This tool from The Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and the New York State Canal Corporation offers resources for teachers including field trips, virtual tours, and more to teach the importance of the waterway in the history of the state and the nation.
Both groups plan to grow the hub as the year continues.
“The Erie Canal Learning Hub is the result of collaborations among educators, curriculum specialists, researchers, museum professionals, and others to develop engaging new approaches to studying the Erie Canal. We are thrilled to be able to expand educational offerings to schools throughout New York and the nation,” said Bob Radliff, Executive Director of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.
More information on the hub can be found the canalway’s website.
