The American Numismatic Association is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect money and related items. The AMA has a thorough virtual museum tour that is one of the better virtual museum tours I’ve seen. The audio narration of the virtual tour really enhances the virtual tour experience.
Applications for Educators
The AMA website has a teachers resource page containing detailed lessons plans about money. My initial thought was that the AMA lessons would be revolve around economics, but I was wrong. The AMA lesson plans are quite appropriate for studying culture and for studying art. The lesson plans and resources are best suited for middle school and high school age students.
