Take a Closer Look           

Grades: 3 – 12, minimum 15, maximum 150 students

During this inquiry-focused package, students will utilize primary and secondary sources to develop questions and make discoveries about the past.  An investigation sheet will be provided to assist students with analyzing artifacts, images, life-like scenes and text in meaningful ways.  A live performance is included as part of the visit and, whenever possible, will be connected to your unit of study.


Write a Museum Review

Grades: 3 – 12, minimum 15/ maximum 150

Your students will be welcomed to the museum as “arts & culture critics” assigned to write a newspaper review of the Frazier History Museum. By utilizing the observation sheets provided, students will capture their thoughts and impressions of the exhibits, staff and facility in an organized way.  A live performance by one of the Frazier’s historical interpreters will provide yet another opportunity for student critique, as well as a method for including Social Studies content. Back at school, students will reflect on their experience and write a review.  Sample museum reviews will available for pre/ post-visit use.


Teacher-Led Experience

Grades K-12, minimum 15/ max 300
