welcome

to the penn

museum

Dear educators,

the penn Museum education staff and i are proud to present our 2012-2013 trip

planner. All of our new workshops, tours, programs and resources have been created

to supplement, complement, enrich and extend classroom teaching and learning.

Our unique educational offerings integrate the penn Museum’s world-class

collection into the core content and are aligned to national and state curriculum

standards. throughout the year we work closely with our teacher Advisory Council

to develop cross-curricular interactive learning experiences that build upon what

students already know and help them delve deeper into the content to make

meaningful connections between themselves and the world in which they live.

now, with our dedicated new classroom, we are excited to have your students

participate in workshops that will educate and engage. Our workshops have been

crafted to integrate science, math and language arts into a variety of content areas,

such as world cultures and ancient civilizations. With the installation of our new

exhibition In the Artifact Lab: Conserving Egyptian Mummies we have created a

supporting workshop, Preserving the Past: Artifact Lab focused on SteM learning

that highlights the science of conserving ancient artifacts. Our new Mummy

Makers Workshop will not only engage your class (what student isn’t intrigued by a

mummy?) but offer insight into the science of mummification.

new docent-led gallery tours, distance learning programs, international

Classroom speakers and loan boxes will keep your class immersed in the cultures

and diversity of the world. Visit our website at www.penn.museum/programs. Here

you will find free educational activities that will enhance either classroom studies

or a trip to the Museum. And don’t forget, if you are a teacher and you want to visit

the Museum to either plan your trip or conduct research for an upcoming lesson or

unit, your admission is free.

We want to hear from you. please send your comments, ideas or thoughts to us

regarding our programs to education@pennmuseum.org. Bring your class to the

penn Museum; they will see artifacts and treasures that will remain with them for a

lifetime.

Sincerely,

Jean Byrne

penn Museum was designed and built to be a premier

cultural institution in philadelphia, the mid-Atlantic

region, the country, and the world. it should come as

no surprise that the penn Museum has a long history of

community outreach and collaboration. this is particularly

evident in the Museum’s educational programs that

connect throughout the city, the Delaware Valley, across

the Commonwealth of pennsylvania, and increasingly

around the globe via new initiatives involving the greater

understanding and appreciation of the world’s cultural

heritage. We welcome your students to get a first-hand

experience with our collections by visiting the Museum.

explore the world’s rich variety of cultures. international Classroom programs

stimulate curiosity and appreciation for the diverse cultures of people around the

world. they raise tolerance for cultural differences, an important goal in today’s

multicultural society and global economy. these programs can be conducted at the

museum or at your school.

World: ancient and modern*

this two-part program is comprised of a gallery tour and a presentation by a

speaker from a country in the featured area. Begin with a tour of a gallery of

your choice such as egypt, Mesopotamia, or China. then participate in a lively

and personal presentation by one of the Museum’s 150

speakers from 60 countries who will share their social

customs, food, music, education, geography, current

affairs, and religion. For example, a visit to the Mexico

and Central America gallery is followed by a talk about

contemporary life in Mexico. international speakers share

information about their home countries through interactive

presentations highlighting photographs, maps, traditional

and modern music, clothing, games, dance, or crafts.

archaeology and anthropology presentations

Graduate students and scholars share their knowledge and

field experience to teach about many different dimensions

of archaeology and anthropology, including culture,

beliefs, rituals, language, architecture, clothing, and social

organization. this helps students to reflect on their own

cultures as well as understand the role of museums in

cultural preservation, exhibition, and education.

*Program does not need to include docent-led tour. Addition of docent-led tour is

subject to additional pricing and group-size restrictions (see page 7).
