Field Trip Resources: During Your Visit

If you would like to add structure to your visit, we have some resources to help you out.

Standards-Based Chaperone Guides

We’re developing chaperone guides, along with background information for teachers, that connect your students’ experiences with our exhibits to the Next Generation Science Standards. These resources will help chaperones focus students’ explorations. They do not require students to use paper and pencil. Resources for other grades will be available in the 2014–2015 school year.

Grade 3 Background for Teachers and Chaperone Guide for Magnetism
