Design Your Own Museum! (Lesson Idea)

Have students imagine that they are architects designing a museum for a collection of small objects, such as cards, shells, stickers, candy, rocks, small images (drawings, photographs, or paintings). Have each student use a museum design sheet and a variety of materials to design and construct their own museum. As they design their museum, have students think about the following questions:

What will your museum look like?

How big will your museum need to be in order to show your collection of objects?

What shape will it be?

What will the entrance look like?
