AMNH Became FlexSchool’s Alternative School for the Day

This FlexFriday we led the students on a trip to the American Museum of Natural History and the museum became our school for the day as Dr. Matt, one of our FlexSchool social study/history/philosophy teachers, guided and sent the students on a scavenger hunt during our visit. Students took a step back through time, beginning with a short film on the Big Bang. We descended down the cosmic pathway as we travelled back to the future and followed the birth of the earth and other planets. Each step on the pathway represents one million years. We continued striding through halls filled with creatures of the past: vertebrates, mammals in America, and, of course, dinosaurs!

The American Museum of Natural History is one of the world’s preeminent scientific and cultural institutions. Since its founding in 1869, the Museum has advanced its global mission to discover, interpret, and disseminate information about human cultures, the natural world, and the universe through a wide-ranging program of scientific research, education, and exhibition. The Museum is renowned for its exhibitions and scientific collections, which serve as a field guide to the entire planet and present a panorama of the world’s cultures.
