Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose

Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose

Children’s Discovery Museum is equally committed to the sciences and arts in its daily program offerings and exhibits. Let us bring creativity and curiosity to your classroom! Join us for virtual art and science experiences inspired by the exhibits at Children’s Discovery Museum. Programming can be reinforced to support what students are currently exploring in their classroom grade level units as well as to reinforce Common Core and VAPA standards.
The virtual field trip portion of the proposed programs will reinforce the concept(s) explored in the first portion of the art lesson. Students will reconvene at the end of their exploration of the Museum to discuss the connections they found to the facilitated art experience, their overall Museum experience, and what they are learning currently in their classroom.
