And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The National Postal Museum is looking for dynamic volunteers to guide Pre K-3rd grade students through interactive field trips. Volunteers use museum objects and educational collections to introduce new approaches to understanding school topics.
Listen, Look & Do (pre K-K) is a multi-sensory tour with 6 different themes available for an iterative experience. Students increase their cognitive skills by listening to a story, looking at objects in the museum, and then doing a fun, hands-on activity.
First Class Problem Solvers (1st-3rd grade) is a facilitated, project-based program emphasizing problem solving skills through teamwork, critical thinking, and communication. Students explore museum objects to understand the steps of problem solving, then apply them to a problem in their school or community.
A lot of new porgrams are in the works, come be part of testing them out!
