HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR TOUR:
Help your students prepare for the tour in two ways: Have an interactive discussion about museum etiquette. Practice looking at art. Click here for more information.
This year, we are offering a guided school tour specifically for Title 1 students! If you are a Title 1 school, join us on the first or third Monday of every month for a morning of learning and exploration as we look at the intersections of math, science and art.
Students will discover the elements of art as they learn concepts of math and science. Each gallery provides the opportunity to look carefully at art and engage in fun activities. This is a unique opportunity for students to participate in experiential learning outside the classroom while meeting fine arts, math and science benchmarks.
Each student will receive this activity booklet with art, math and science activities to take back to the classroom and a Parent Pass to bring two adults back to the museum!
Continue your museum experience back at school! Borrow artifacts related to your tour from the Lending Collection to use in the classroom. The Lending Collection is a free resource for island educators. Pre-packaged object trunks available for some tours, or hand pick objects from the collection for any tour.
