National Geographic Learning (NGL), who is developing a World History program for middle school students, spent a day filming behind-the-scenes and in the galleries of the Penn Museum on Monday, April 21.
When edited, the segment filmed at the Penn Museum will be part of a much larger social studies video program that complements and expands upon a print textbook to be published in 2016.
Here taking a break from filming for a group shot in the China Gallery is the full crew:
