Start here to create an editable and printable document that outlines your field trip itinerary, learning goals, student questions, etc.
a. Below, filter Museum offerings by grade level and learning goal.
b. Select up to 4 offerings to add to your field trip guide. Your selections will be shown on the right.
c. Click the "Get Your Guide" button.
The following activity sheets match one or more of your selections.
With help from members of the Museum’s live animal collection, educators address behaviors, environments, classification, and adaptations. Observe a live animal and consider the characteristics and adaptations that help it live in its environment.
Hear a story and meet its animal star in a presentation made especially for our younger visitors!
Explore boundaries between land, air and sea in this set of dioramas and activities. Scientists have become increasingly fascinated by the study of these edges or fronts because of the new insigths they provide into bolologic and geologic patterns.
Travel with brother and sister duo, Jack and Annie, in their Magic Tree House--as they proceed to answer questions left for them in a mysterious note signed "--M.", receiving help from an astronomer, an astronaut, books, and the note's author along the way!
Discover how scientists and mathematicians use models to learn about things that are too big or too small to work with directly. Maps, charts, and graphs are all models.
The world of maps is one of infinite possibilities. They help us navigate from here to there, but they can also be abstractions, diagrams of relationships or interactions over time. This exhibit shows several samples of different types of maps, and it also invites you to create your own!
Bigger / smaller, faster / slower, heavier / lighter — use your body to explore ratios and proportion in our newest math exhibit!
See the most compelling images and stories from the many branches of mathematics. Create soap bubble models of three-dimensional cubes and pyramids. Examine the huge Mobius band, which is an unusual shape with only one surface. Look for patterns throughout the exhibit, such as the pattern made by the balls falling in the "Probability Machine."
Chronicling how the Museum of Science has evolved over the last 180 years to meet the changing needs of society, this exhibit tells our story through artifacts and interactive displays — from the "Chamber of Curiosities" to visions of the future.
Learn how scientists can manipulate matter on a very tiny scale to build materials and devices used in computing, engineering, medicine, and other fields. Also check out the Amazing Nano Brothers Juggling Show. For schedules, visit mos.org/nano.
