We are going to the Mitchell Botanical Domes in Milwaukee,WI.
They have a program where the kids do one drawing of the plants in each of
the 3 domes. The kids take them back to school, finish them with whatever
medium, and send them back for them to put them up for display.
Then we proceed to the the Milwaukee Art Museum and they have an hour long
tour planned having to do with nature. This is a change of what we usually
do and we are all looking forward to it.

and nominate a beautiful site or view and nominate an ugly site or view
along the route that they see while on the bus trip to and from the museum.
They can make a quick sketch and a brief description.
> If you know the bus route, you could ask them to take special note of
several sites along the way. Give them a work sheet to complete during the
trip to and from the museum. The work sheet builds awareness for the best
and worst examples you can identify along the route.
