Hands-on history: museum becomes classroom for curious students

It’s one thing to study about history in a virtual classroom; it’s another to be immersed in it inside a museum.  Students from every area district now have the opportunity to experience hands-on lessons in after-school programs for third- through eighth-graders at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.  Expanded virtual programs for every grade level and digital learning kits for teachers are also available online to enhance learning on any platform. Our School News Network videographer takes us inside.

Grand Rapids Public Museum is a proud sponsor of SNN
