The Horse is a fully comprehensive exhibit that aims to educate children on all aspects of the horse from its biology to its impact on society.
The tour begins with one theory on how the horse has changed over millions of years to its form today. It also focuses on the domestication of the horse and how the horse has played a key role in warfare, work, travel, and sports. Students will also love the interactive portion showing the digestive system of the horse in a fun and interesting way. This exhibition is ideal for science teachers in grades 3-12 and directly correlates with much of the core content required from the Kentucky Department of Education.
Themes within social studies, such as history and world cultures, and art are also covered and can make a very informative and entertaining trip for students in middle and high school.
Fully prepared and informative educators’ guides are made available through the American Museum of Natural History. This includes questions to develop discussion, key terms and ideas, and games. The website also illustrates how to teach within the exhibit and connect the content upon return to the classroom.
Kentucky school groups with students K-12 will only be charged $2 per student, and will receive a discounted rate for the accompanying adults. For more information on school group tours, contact Hope McDowell in Group Sales, 859-259-4225.
