Hispanic Heritage Month spans the latter half of September and the first half of October, and this Smithsonian Education website provides information about this celebration for educators, students, and others. First-time visitors should click on the "Virtual Tour" to get started. Starting with some lively music, the feature allows visitors to learn about Latino culture through a close look at important items from the Smithsonian's collections, along with a timeline and a quiz. Visitors can even create their own tour of the objects as well. Back on the homepage, the "Teaching Resources" area is one that shouldn't be missed. Here visitors can look over other relevant collections, including an exhibit from the National Postal Museum titled "Celebrating Hispanic Heritage" and "A Puerto Rican Carnival". Additionally, visitors can sign up to receive updates and look over a calendar of nationwide events.
