Listen to Nancy Drogy, a teacher at the Temple Elementary School, talk about the importance of Mariposa to her and her students, at this link: http://www.nhpr.org/node/25779.
Latin America Teach-In
We welcome special relationships with teachers and classes. For example, we have worked with one high school World Civilization program in conjunction with a local fourth grade to prepare teaching packets about Tibet for elementary schools.
We helped MC2 School with the science and physics of sound using our instruments from around the world meeting the science requirements for the 3rd grade.
Third grade teachers at Peterborough elementary school helped create a presentation about the physics of sound using Museum instruments from around the world. This presentation has become a part of Museum tours about sound across cultures.
We welcome teachers to pre-visit the Museum before coming with a class. Some examples of Tour Lesson Plans are provided online so you can get a sense of what might be offered. Please call ahead if you choose to visit before your class so that we can be available to talk with you and show you our resources, including artifacts, videos, books, and art projects. Please visit our Resource Library page to see some examples of books that are available.
The Mariposa Museum offers programs on cultures from around the world and on themes that cross between cultures, such as childhood and celebrations. We offer programs for all grade levels K-12. Some are of course more suitable for primary grades, others for middle or high school students. We can adapt most topics to different age groups.
When children are raised with respect and curiosity towards
other cultures, the world will know more peace and less war.
