The Museum of Culture and Environment encourages educators to use the following lesson plans either as stand alone classroom exercises or in conjunction with a visit to the Museum. In some cases lesson plans are tied to current or past exhibitions at the Museums; other lesson plans may be used independent of specific installations.
Lesson plans are developed by Museum Studies students under the supervision of Professor J. Hope Amason.
Please contact the Museum if you have any questions, or would like to suggest other lesson plans and educational resources we might develop.
