Programs for Schools at Blue Hills
Discover the natural world with the Blue Hills Trailside Museum in Milton. Each program is aligned with the Massachusetts Department of Education frameworks.
Our standards-based programs are designed to teach environmental science in a fun, interactive, and educational way. When appropriate, our programs feature animal presentations with native, non-releasable wildlife.
Our programs are available at the Museum or we can bring them to you. We will also work with you to create a custom program to meet your student’s needs.
Through interactive presentations in the Museum’s auditorium, students make inquiries, investigate, classify, think critically, and draw conclusions. Programs include activities such as making observations, participating in demonstrations, and handling natural history artifacts. Each program is geared to the age level and curriculum needs of the students.
Staff from the Blue Hills Trailside Museum will visit your class to provide students with a broader understanding of the natural world and a brief visit with native wildlife. Programs include interactive discussions, specimen study, and educational activities. Observation skills and seasonal elements are emphasized.
These programs provide wonderful learning opportunities for your preschool students. The programs are a mix of hands-on activities, experiments, songs, demonstrations, stories, and a visit with a native animal. Our programs are specially designed to strengthen listening and observation skills while teaching students about the natural world.
