Be a Museum Curator

Level: 12 to 13 years

Goals:

Description:
A special feature of the web exhibition is that many of the shoes can be moved or rotated using the directional buttons. This provides the ability to see all sides of the footwear, and to zoom in on details for a closer look. This feature also offers students the unique opportunity to 'handle' the objects the way that a Museum Curator might, and to make observations accordingly.

Ask students to choose two of the 3D artifacts. Using Worksheet 2 - Be a Museum Curator, ask them to compare the artifacts, considering the criteria listed as well as at least five other criteria they think of themselves. Alternatively, ask students to compare a 3D moccasin from the Paths Across the Plains web exhibition with a boot from Footsteps on the Sacred Earth.
