Kansas Day at the Museum - Activities


Standards Based Activities

In the lobby of the museum you will find a wide variety of hands-on activities.  Each has been chosen to correlate to the Kansas Academic Standards and many feature STEM activities.  Students will learn about Kansas as they do activities focusing on business and industry in Kansas.

Historic Craft Demonstrators

Take a step back in time as you learn about the low-tech life of the past.  Feel the softness of wool as you card it for spinning.  Talk to an American Indian flute maker. Watch wood carvers turn a piece of wood into something exciting. Duck as an airplane buzzes over head. Throw the shuttle and pull back the beater as you weave yarn on a loom. Learn about American Indians as you examine food grown from heritage seeds.  All this and more awaits you on Kansas Day.
