The Parsons Conservation Lab is committed to raising awareness about cultural heritage preservation through educational outreach. Objects, materials, and conservation practices provide engaging contexts for teaching and learning about science, history, art, archaeology, etc. Classroom lessons and activities developed with teachers and students provide resources for a variety of ages, grade levels, and learning environments.
Lessons and hands-on activities relate Old Testament themes to objects from the Near East Collection. Each unit includes images, discussion questions, vocabulary, relevant Hebrew texts, and more!
