Exhibit Scavenger Hunts

Are you the parent of a homeschooled student? Or just looking for an educational activity to do at the muse 

The BCHS is proud to announce that we have developed activities and worksheets for individual students or groups to work on together!

These free worksheets for Elementary, Middle, and High School aged students and are available for pickup at the museum’s front desk in the gift shop and can also be emailed out ahead of time or shared via Google Docs. Designed as scavenger hunts, they require you to explore through the museum galleries for answers to questions on the worksheets.

Once done, answers may be checked in the Answer Key at the front desk. If you would like to print them ahead of time or have them shared via Google Docs, please email Education Coordinator Sam Fitzpatrick at samf@bchsmuseum.org or call 989 893 5733. 
This is an ongoing project, and more is to come later—keep an eye out for more on our website and social media. As our exhibits change, worksheets will be updated in the future. Screenshots are shown for illustration.

 
Introducing the BCHS Family Guide to the Museum
 
These free guidebooks are available for pickup at the front desk or by download via Google Docs. Please contact Sam Fitzpatick for download information. 
 
The guidebooks include maps to both floors and all public galleries at the Museum. The attached lists show where you can find out interactive zones and mind jogging locations. "Mind jogging" locations are areas in the galleries where questions may be asked to get young minds thinking about the exhibit displays. Stop in and get yours today!

 Activity 8:  High School/Adult Level Scavenger Hunt/All Galleries

 Are you looking for a great team building activity for high school aged students or adults? This activity--available by special request only--is a scavenger hunt game meant to be played either as a single group or can be split up into multiple teams. If playing in multiple groups, the first team to find all the clues wins!

 An initial clue will be handed out to the team(s), then they will be sent on their way to find the next 12 clues spread throughout our various galleries. All clues and answers are related to something on display. Answers to the clues are to be found by scanning the QR codes--these codes will only be up while the game is in play. If interested contact the Museum to set up a game day for your group!
