Use age-appropriate scavenger hunts, activity pages, and exploration prompts to learn about MIM’s collections during a field trip to the museum. Teachers and chaperones can use these printable pages to guide students through the galleries.

Group leaders are encouraged to design and lead their own fun activities for students in the galleries. Below are two suggestions: BINGO in the galleries and a Framing Activity. Both support AZ K–12 Academic Standards in English Language Arts and Social Studies.
