Providing more learning opportunities is the theme of the next several weeks for DNR officials.
Spokesperson Rachel Torbert indicates they have lots of online learning materials for teachers or parents to access to have their kids to do. The DNR Division of Education has plenty of activities and hands-on experiences to try.
For additional materials, Torbert points folks to the Illinois State Museum for social studies lessons. Even though the museum is shut down, there are still plenty of things online to be done.
According to Torbert, the Illinois State Museum is offering several activities surrounding one of its most popular yearly events. She says the event is going to take on a digital form this year and hopes they get good participation.
Follow the Illinois State Museum on Facebook and Twitter. Torbert says on Twitter, they have themed activities on each day you can follow. Torbert says their education division continues to develop their curriculum so teachers can utilize some of those resources during this shelter from home period that has students away from school.
