Just a quick note on what I remember doing for a field trip to the
Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh with a colleague. We took slides of about 20
pieces of art that were in the museum and that we thought would appeal to
the students (grades 4/5, I think) We then planned a little pre museum
lesson to acquaint them. Actually, the students were enthusiastic as they
recognized the pieces. I think this helped. We also planned some
activities for the students to do and they were also allowed to draw so we
brought some supplies. It depends on the museum. sometimes the docents are
helpful, too.
