Educators' Guide

Welcome to the City Museum’s Teacher Resource page. Programs and materials presented here draw upon the New York State Social Studies Standards, The Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts, English Language Arts Standards, various curricula, and assessment tests. The activities suggested in the guides were created in collaboration with elementary and middle school teachers. They are designed to enhance your classroom curriculum and enrich your students’ experience at the Museum.
