From the article: "The Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies is offering a series of free online tours that invite educators, families, and students to learn about America's diverse cultural heritage by examining objects drawn from the Smithsonian's vast collections." By using these objects, the visitors can examine the information to a deeper level of information. Using art and historical objects visitors can learn more about African American and Latino history. Examine items such as Mohammed Ali's red boxing gloves, portraits of George Washington Carver and Mary Chruch Terrell. There are activities, downloadable images and standards based information within the site.
