MEETEETSE MUSEUMS EDUCATION PROGRAMS
Grades pre K-12
Schools can explore the Meeteetse Museums on their own with the option of a variety of scavenger hunts. The museum staff will welcome the class with a short introduction before allowing students to explore the museum on their own. Typical self-guided tour times range from an hour to an hour and a half. Available scavenger hunts include the Technology Hunt, Meeteetse and Economics, and Collections on Exhibit.
Students will learn how animals adapt to their habitat through a tour of the Meeteetse Museum’s natural history collection. With the aid of touchable artifacts from the teaching collection, students will gain an understanding of the importance of habitat and physiological and behavioral adaptations.
Meeteetse is home of the endangered black-footed ferret. Through this tour students will learn about the endangered species, breeding efforts, and the history of the black footed ferret.
Making a Living in Meeteetse
This program provides students with the opportunity to learn about Meeteetse history through occupations in and around the town.
Students will use primary sources to learn about Meeteetse area culture before learning how we gain information about history when primary sources are limited. They will investigate what problems arise from these situations.
