Virtual Student Museum Tour is Online

 We can’t make ice cream virtually, but we can welcome 3rd grade students to the ECCHS museum via a virtual tour!

Virtual Tour is a streamed video with 7 sections divided by a ‘title screen’ so you can start and stop to discuss, show on different days, etc to match your instructional planning.
