Be a Museum Curator!

As part of the unit, Making Cultural Connections: Connecting Experiences across Cultures, you will research a culture in order to create a museum exhibit with artifacts that fully represent a culture.

Before you begin to develop your museum, think about:

  • The different stories you have read so far. What culture interests you most? Why?

  • What kind of information would you use to fully represent a culture? (clothing, art, government, etc.)

  • What is the purpose of visiting a museum?

  • How would you compare a museum to a virtual museum that you visit online?

  • What information do you need to include in a virtual museum?

Now it’s time to design a museum!

When you have finished your research, create an exhibit in your museum that is both interesting and relative to your culture.

In your museum, be sure to:

  • Include at least five cultural artifacts that represent an aspect of your culture.

  • Include a brief description about your artifact and its relevance, or importance, to the culture (3-5 sentences).

  • Give credit to the sources from which you gathered information in MLA format.

  • Represent each artifact visually (short movie clips or pictures).

  • Organize your thoughts and have few grammatical, spelling, capitalization, or punctuation errors.

 

Narrowing My Choices

Directions: Think about some of the cultures that we have read about in Unit 2 and use the online databases to investigate these cultures further. Choose at least two cultures that interest you and fill in the chart below.

Culture that Interests Me:

Reasons why I chose this Culture …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Directions: Next, NARROW your choice down to the one culture that interests you most. Place a next to your top choice. Explain your reasoning and decision using complete sentences on the lines provided.

Making Cultural Connections:

Connecting Experiences across Cultures

Embedded Assessment # 1

You are a new curator of a well-respected museum, and you are responsible for your first big exhibit. You want the exhibit to be well-rounded with artifacts that fully represent the culture. In order to do this, you must conduct research about the culture. Based on your research, you must select at least five (5) cultural artifacts to include in the exhibit. The exhibit should contain a variety of cultural artifacts including, but not limited to, paintings, sculptures, pottery, clothing, jewelry, tools and/or instruments. For each item in the exhibit, you must create an information card that explains the item and how it is relevant to the culture.

Make corrections on your project by having a peer edit your museum. After making corrections, self assess your project to make sure that you have included everything.
