PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you are a new teacher or new to organizing field trips, you will find this practical guide very helpful. We all know how important it is to give our students real-world learning experiences outside the classroom, but sometimes just the thought of organizing a field trip for so many kids is exhausting.

It's time to start looking more closely at the benefits of "place-based learning" - starting with a visit to a museum. Venturing outside the classroom can be something SO much more than *just* a field trip!

Here's what you'll find in this packet:

Letter to the teacher (contains research in support of place-based learning)

Table of Contents

Why Visit a Museum? (student handout)

What Can You Find in a Museum? (student handout)

Preparing for a Museum Visit (teacher guide)

Ideas for Interaction and/or Assessment

Printable Student Response Sheets: “My Top Ten Favorite Museum Artifacts”, “My Museum Questions”, “Just One Thing”, and “Museum Scavenger Hunt”
