Wyoming, ON - A key aspect of the Lambton County Museums & Archives Mandate is to provide educational opportunities for local schools, organizations and the general public. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Museums & Archives have temporarily suspended inperson programming. In order to continue to meet their educational mandate, the Oil Museum of Canada, Lambton Heritage Museum and Lambton County Archives are excited to announce the launch of their new online learning resources.
The Oil Museum, Heritage Museum and Archives have developed free curriculum-linked lessons for students in grades 2 through 10 covering a variety of topics. Links to these lessons are included on the Online Learning page at lambtonmuseums.ca. In addition to the lessons, the page also includes virtual tours, links to local history blogs and webinars, and information on other resources offered through the Museum.
"The Online Learning page gathers all of our educational offerings for teachers and educators in one place, making it easier to find materials and plan a lesson," says Laurie Webb, Manager, Museums, Gallery & Archives. "The resources can be used in a wide variety of educational settings, including in the classroom, and are perfect for asynchronous teaching and at-home learners."
Additional lessons and materials will be added as they become available. Users can subscribe to the page to receive notifications when new content is available for use.
After an extended closure, Lambton County Museums and Archives are now open to the public with enhanced safety protocols to ensure visitor and staff safety. These new protocols include limiting the number of visitors in our buildings, managed visitor flow throughout the building, and time-ticketed entry. All visitors are required to pre-book a time to explore the Museums and Archives. Visitors without a pre-booked ticket will only be accommodated if space is available. To book your visit, go to lambtonmuseums.ca.
