At the Museum

Gather the students so that they can see and hear the demonstrator and take notes.
Tell students to take careful and detailed notes and be as actively involved in the demonstration as possible. Suggest that they make sketches or diagrams, label the parts of objects, and write down unfamiliar terms that they can ask the demonstrator to define. If you have prepared a handout, give it to the students in the museum.

Watch the time so that students see a complete demonstration and finish their notes before leaving the museum.
Tell students that they are to base their essays solely on the demonstration and that they will not be able use other sources of information. Thus they will need to ask all of their questions and finish their notes and sketches before they leave.
