New York’s Public Television Stations Launch New York State History Collection on PBS LearningMedia
WNET is proud to announce a new collection of elementary social studies resources on PBS LearningMedia, a free website for teachers. The New York State & Local History & Government collection features over 80 multimedia educational resources that are aligned to topics in the New York State Social Studies Framework for Grade 4. The collection features videos, interactive games, lesson plans, and primary source documents all designed to bring the history of the Empire State to life.
In conjunction with the launch, partner station WNET has produced a new animated web series called Upstate, Downstate, designed to get upper elementary students excited about New York State History. Check out the first two episodes on the collection homepage.
