Field trips play an important role for students and educators. A new learning environment provides the opportunity to build team and small group skills and engage students on an intellectual, social and physical level.
By integrating classroom learning with physical objects and hands-on experiences, students have an opportunity to better understand curriculum concepts and how they connect to the world around them.
CHAPERONES & ADULT VISITORS
Teacher and chaperone involvement in the visit greatly improves the students’ experience.
Cranbrook recommends a ratio of: 1 chaperone: 3 students for Preschool and Kindergarten 1 chaperone: 5 students for grades 1-12
Additional chaperones (beyond the recommended ratio) are always welcome at an additional fee of $10 per person.
Due to classroom space limitations, additional chaperones may not be able to attend all programming.
Chaperones must supervise and stay with their group for the entire visit.
Please brief your chaperones in advance so they will feel comfortable and know what is expected of them and the students in their charge.
We reserve the right to shorten your groups visit due to behavior issues that impact our guests or museum property.
- Programs start on the hour and run 45 minutes.
- Due to limited space we are only able to store coats and lunches.
- Food and beverages, are only permitted in designated areas.
- Chewing gum is not permitted in the museum.
