Tour a Local Museum
- Grades: 3–5, 6–8
If you, like Brian Selznick, were inspired by glimpses into the storerooms and workshops of the American Museum of Natural History, consider getting in touch with a museum in your area and asking for a behind-the-scenes tour. You may be able to work collaboratively with the museum by having your students do research on the topic of an upcoming exhibit. Perhaps your class could create a student guide. Who knows? One of your students may discover a life’s vocation!
