Kinder 3 has been studying museums with Miss Leza. They went on virtual field trips to the Museum of Natural History in New York and to the Louvre in Paris. Then, students chose one type of museum to specialize in. They could choose a natural history museum or an art museum.
They each had to create sculptures, paintings or posters and a hands on activity that their museum guests could do. Naturally, all of these different exhibits involved measuring, writing, investigating, measuring, money counting, etc in their daily activities.
The culminating activity was a “Night at the Museum” with their families. They had to give us all a virtual tour of their museums. It was an exciting new project exploring project-based learning in the midst of distant learning.
