Educator Guides

The Educator Guides below include suggestions for connecting your curriculum through pre-visit preparation activities, guiding questions and activities to use during your field trip, and ideas for building on the experience back at school after your visit. Educator Guides are offered to assist with lesson plans on plant biology and health benchmarks and tie standardized curriculum goals to your museum field trip visit.  Throughout the various guides you will find activites from plant biology basics to the complex and amazing survival strategies adapted and created by plants as found in the exhibit. Activities have been correlated to the National Science Standards at the K-4 and 5-8 grade levels and to the Next Generation Science Standards for grades K - 8. 

We hope the ideas, activities, and suggestions will help you make the most of your educational visi to the exhibit
