McArthur Homeschool Group

Here is an overview of the field trip…Melissa McDaniel is bringing her group of 20-30 home school students and parents for a general tour of the ZMA. They will arrive at the ZMA between 10 and 10:30 am. The group ranges from preschool to adult. Ms. McDaniel will give us a more specific head count closer to the event. They did not request any specific theme or gallery, so this will be a museum highlight tour. Some may participate in an art activity after their tour. They will update us as they gather information from their group.

  • For 45 minutes to an hour, you will be:

    • Leading 10-15 guests on a general museum tour

Girl Scout Day at the ZMA

Here is an overview of the event… The Girl Scouts will be here from 1-4 pm to earn their Junior Jeweler Badge. Part of the badge requirement is to view and learn about a display of jewelry. Girls will be rotating through three stations of jewelry making activities and one tour station, so there will be four total tours throughout the event. Use the form to select the time/times best for you. Last year we had around 50 participants. I will pass along registration updates as I get them from the Girl Scouts.

What docents will be doing and how to prepare…

  • Information on how to facilitate the jewelry discussion and information on the jewelry in the Diverse Cultures Gallery can be found in the training Power Point that Laine put together for last year’s Girl Scout jewelry event.

    • Use the information in the Power Point to prepare. Please ask Misty if you have any questions.
