Scavenger Hunts

Scavenger hunts are designed to help students actively explore the Museum galleries. We have beginning, intermediate, and advanced sheets that vary in depth and analysis. Depending on the level of your students, choose which sheet works best with the education goals you have set for the visit. Stay tuned for new and improved scavenger hunts coming soon!

Pre and Post visit lesson plans

Language Arts and Anthropology: A Program for Enhancing English Literacy with Museum of Man Education Programs was funded with a grant from the De Falco Family Foundation, Gig Harbor, Washington, with additional support from the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Program.

The content and educational activities included in the lesson plans below were developed by the Education Department of the San Diego Museum of Man.
