Drawing on the content in The Museum and our collections, we offer programming for grades 2-12 focused on deepening students' understanding of the lessons of the 60s and their relevance today. Take a trip with us through an immersive, three module process:
- Module 1: Begin any Explore the ‘60s experience with a pre-visit traveling trunk to be sent to your school. This trunk will be customized for your content focus, bringing the '60s to life by creating understanding through hands-on exploration and arts based activities. Don’t forget to bring your artwork in the day you visit The Museum at Bethel Woods!
- Module 2: Once you arrive at the museum, hang your art in the Event Gallery! Staff and volunteers will then guide the class on a deep exploration of The Museum, piecing together a collaborative puzzle of collected clues, ensuring a deep and meaningful, Common Core aligned learning experience – and a ton of fun! Once our puzzle is complete, participants create their own '60s masterpiece to bring back to the classroom!
- Module 3: Now that you’re back at school, the post-visit action packet will prompt students and teachers to bridge current connections from the 1960s to now! Common Core Anchor Standards will be reinforced by activities that will focus on each participants' individual connection to the great decade, deepen their learning experience, and hone their skills!
