All museum programs meet the performance standards in Connecticut’s K-12 Curriculum Framework. Specific content standards are indicated within each program description. Please ask if you would like more information about how individual programs meet these indicators.
Resource Lessons are programs delivered in your classroom by an experienced museum educator. Group Visits are field trips to the museum with an educational program included. Nature Center Visits include a program and an opportunity to explore the trails on a local nature preserve. Educational Kits are boxes of museum artifacts and ideas that teachers can use in the classroom. Booth-style Programs are available for events and fairs.
Help us to provide the best program possible! Please advise us at the time of scheduling of any special needs or allergies within your group. If you have questions, feel free to speak directly with the educator who will be delivering your program. We ask that you remain in the room for the duration of the program. Please handle any classroom management issues as you normally would, to provide consistency.
