We hate History textbooks in our home. Why use a boring textbook when you can experience it in real life! That is why the Genghis Khan Exhibit at the Irving Arts Center is an awesome opportunity to experience a bit of history in a way your children and you will actually remember. Honestly…think back to when you were in school. Now dig deep into the depths of your brain and tell me what you remember being taught about Genghis Khan… For most I am sure your answer is “Nadda…..“
Did you know you can schedule a field trip to the exhibit? You can download the field trip form and get it all scheduled. They have study guides available as well that tie into objects, videos and activities within the exhibition and complement lesson plans for history, arts, music and English classes. Enrichment activities are available as part of pre-exhibition, during-exhibition and post-exhibition learning and include word find puzzles, vocabulary, knowledge hunts, story-telling, detailed TEKS objectives and more. See, you can cover a lot more that history with this!
This is a learning opportunity that you don’t want to miss! Imagine the information and ideas you could gather to prepare a LapBook for world history including Genghis Kahn! Here are a few links to get you started.
