If bringing your students to Antietam National Battlefield is a challenge, consider scheduling a distance learning program!
•Schools can connect directly to the park rangers through Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Webex. We can work with you or your IT staff beforehand to set up a virtual meeting, to make sure all of the equipment works.
•Park Rangers are available to present an overview of the Battle of Antietam using a PowerPoint presentation and/or photographs and then answer student questions. This program takes about 30 minutes and is offered year-round from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
•Rangers can also present programs on Civil War Medicine, Civil War Signal Flags and the Life of a Civil War Soldier.
For more information or to set up a distance learning session, please email us or call us at 301-432-5124.
A 6-minute YouTube video where park rangers describe the battle is also available. This is a great introduction for your students before participating in the distance learning session.
