Penn Museum of Anthropology, 3260 South St, Philadelphia, PA 19104


Monday, July 30 & Tuesday, July 31 
8:30 AM – 3:30 PM (both days)

The Penn Museum and the South Asia Center invite K-12 educators to join us for a two-day exploration of South Asian history and culture. Participate in hands-on workshops that demonstrate how to use objects in your classroom – no matter what subject you teach! Learn directly from Penn Museum anthropologist, Dr. Kathleen Morrison, about her research in India and work with other educators to develop engaging cross-curricular lessons that place objects at the center of learning. Participants will receive fourteen Act 48 Credits, free parking, free breakfast and lunch, and (upon completion of a lesson plan) a free Artifact Loan Box rental ($75 value!)
