Keep Kids Engaged at Museums by Making Connections to Stuff They Know

If you've ever tried to go to a museum with a child, you know it isn't an easy task to keep them entertained. One way to help them focus is to ask them questions about the exhibits. These questions help the kids make connections with what they're seeing and keep them engaged.

Mara Gorman at The Mother of All Trips explains:

Talk about what is familiar in the art you are exploring. Are there places or things the children have seen before? Are there children in the paintings? What are they reading or playing? How are their clothes different or the same? If it's a family portrait, how are the family members interacting with each other?
