Activities:

In connection with the competency Uses Creativity (stimulate the imagination)

10 min
More than Just a Doodle
The imagination can be developed, just like a muscle. Ask students to draw a doodle in coloured pencil on a sheet of paper and then trade it with a classmate’s doodle. Ask them to examine the drawing they’ve received by turning it around in different orientations until they spot a way to complete it. It will be easier to distinguish the original doodle if the students use different colours.

Plant the seeds for a fruitful experience

In advance of your Museum visit, think of ways you can pique your students’ curiosity, arouse their enthusiasm and lessen any nervousness they might have. This is also a great time to establish interdisciplinary connections, if desired.

Planning your visit

We recommend you review the Museum’s code of conduct with your students by referring to our MuseuManners.
