**UPDATED 1/27/15** This 4-page web scavenger hunt allows students to visit websites that extend their knowledge of people, places, and things referenced in the book From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler!
In addition to learning more about the Metropolitan Museum of Art, students will also explore E.L. Konigsburg's motivations for writing the book, as well as what museum features the Kincaid children encounter in the book are still located in the museum and which are not. Students will also research: how to purchase a train ticket from Greenwich to NYC, how the Parke-Bernet Galleries originated, Central Park, and Grand Central Station. In addition to using websites, they'll access maps and museum guides from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's website and refer to them during their scavenger hunt.
