Grade 5/6 in the NHC

Designing your exhibit

As you develop your ideas for your museum exhibit, let’s first consider:

  1. What are the most important aspects of this time period or topic? What major themes should you try to convey with this exhibit?
  2. What do you want people to walk away from this exhibit understanding? How do you want people to interact with your exhibit? Should they just walk past? Look? Pick up objects? Turn? Participate in some other way?
  3. Will this exhibit be controversial in any way? How will you present a balanced view if the subject is controversial?
  4. What artifacts, images, and interactive features would help us convey those ideas?

Each student is to sketch out their plan, and then come together to share their findings if they are working in a group.

A resource I discovered online that may be of help to break down our learning journey in Pegasus this term.
