Take a scavenger hunt through our virtual collections, watch an OI lecture, relax with a coloring page, or try out ancient-themed crafts and activities.

You have reached the reference page for our weekly social media explorations! Here, you can access content referenced in our posts. No worries if you didn’t catch these in real time, each workbook, activity, video, and reading selection can be enjoyed on its own.
