It can be a challenge to take some students to an art museum, but the students who aren’t blessed with a social map can hardly be expected to behave like seasoned visitors. This packet will help you lay the groundwork for your museum trip and help all your students develop two skills: Resisting the temptation to touch the art work, and standing with their peers in small groups for 5 to 10 minute docent tour stops.
