What are you curious about? What interests you? In this class, it’s up to you to figure out what you want to learn! First, as a group, we will try out some inquiry based learning activities. Then, students will have a chance to explore the museum and choose an exhibit, photograph, object, architecture, or anything on display that they would like to know more about. After a bit of observation and fact-gathering, students will create personalized artful mini books to record what they have learned.
