If you've never been to a museum in Germany, you don't have to travel too far to have a culturally enriching experience! Clay Hendrix at LHS had his level 5 students create their own museum artifacts after researching products that interested them from the time period they were studying. I talked further with Clay about this activity because it seemed creative and engaging as well as being something that pushed his students to take ownership of their learning.
I asked him about how long it took to set up because time is our most precious commodity. He said, "It's one of those activities that's so student driven that there's not a lot of planning on my part. It was really like, set up the parameters, give them the resources, do it!"

In a previous post I shared with you about Gallery Walks, and a classroom museum is yet another way to utilize this strategy in your classroom.
