Welcome to Classroom Connect

Welcome to the Walters’ Classroom Connect portal. Here you will find a collection of multimedia resources designed with K-8 curricula in mind. Please bookmark this page in your web browser in order to return to these resources without completing the questionnaire in future.

Comprising videos, activity sheets, and a graphic novel, Classroom Connect uses themes to explore the Walters Art Museum’s collection and build visual literacy, creativity and historical and critical thinking skills. The resources available here can be used online or in print to support learning for students with little to no internet access, at home or in their classrooms.

The Walters expansive collection of historic art offers an incredible opportunity to interrogate the past and better understand the present. Classroom Connect was designed using student and teacher learning standards set by our district partners and Maryland State, as well as the key principles of inquiry-based learning and object-centered teaching, encouraging students to ask questions, to seek answers, and to support observations about the world around them. Through Classroom Connect, your student will learn about the ways in which objects tell us about the people and cultures who made them.
