Don't let those lesson plans bring you down.
Find something educational and fun for your students.
I know just the place...
all teachers know, students each have different methods of learning.
Some are visual learners,
and still others tactile learners.
The Raleigh City Museum offers experiences for all types of learners.
Some exhibits incite optical stimulation with the use of color and organization.
Other exhibits allow students to listen to recorded accounts of a participant's
experiences. The Raleigh City Museum offers a myriad of learning opportunities
for all students, young and not-so-young. So teachers, put on your
walking shoes, because we are taking a trip!!
At the Raleigh City Museum, students are able to make a journey through time and watch the city grow from just a few acres to the vast acreage Raleigh now claims. Raleigh's population has continued to boom throughout the centuries. At the Raleigh City Museum, students are able to find their houses on a map and determine how long their streets or neighborhoods have been a part of Raleigh. They are able to view panoramas of historic Raleigh and also learn about the struggles faced by African-Americans during the Civil Rights Movement.
