With the effects of the pandemic, and class visits and special guests up in the air, the Thunder Bay Museum is offering programming that can be individually purchased to use in your classroom.  Teachers, these programs consist of lessons and activities to enhance and engage students of various grade levels.  Currently they can be purchased by emailing Marissa our Education and Outreach Coordinator, but soon they will be able to be purchased right through our website. Please note that once you purchase these programs, you have the license to use them but cannot share them with other teachers.  Please do not upload any part of the programs on personal/school websites unless they must be accessed by students using a password.
