Click on the headings below to explore a list for each or go to the CHART (coming soon) to find by topic and grade level.
Self-Guided - no staff facilitation
Since there is no staff-facilitation, a self-guided experience is dependent on each teacher's planning and preparation for her or his class visit.
Discovery Stations - partly staff-facilitated
Students rotate through 15-minute staff-led activities and spend the rest of the time in the exhibition hall doing either open exploration or whatever you, the teacher, has planned for them. Discovery Station activities are designed to provide students with a hands-on, interactive learning experience related to the exhibit
Guided Explorations (Tours) - completely staff-facilitated
RMSC staff spark hands-on, active exploration using artifacts and objects that are available on these guided tours only. They will work with you to highlight specific content to meet your curriculum goals.
