One of the pursuits of the Children’s Museum is to plan and produce educational programs and relevant material appropriate to the needs of teachers and pupils of Elementary Education.
These programs seek to introduce the teacher to the special method required for an effective educational project realized in a Museum. The teacher’s participation in such a program gives him the chance to experience these methods so as to make the best out of them when he visits another Museum. In addition he is supplied with the necessary educational material which he can utilize in order to prepare his pupils for a future visit to a Museum (behaviour, approach, observation, description of the exhibits). For example, in the case of the National Archaeological Museum, a pamphlet and a “Passport” are available to the teacher. The pamphlet contains ideas and activities which can be applied and performed before the educational visit to the Museum. The passport enables the visiting pupil to “travel” via the exhibits through the centuries.
