Standards Based Activities


In the lobby of the museum you will find a wide variety of hands-on activities.  Each has been chosen to correlate to the Kansas Academic Standards and are designed especially for Kansas Day visitors. Activities this year include:

  • creating a timeline of famous Kansans
  • inventions that began with Kansans
  • searching for fossils in the tradition of famous Kansas paleontologists
  • use a wall map to locate famous people in Kansas
  • play an aviation game
  • build a free standing tower in 30 seconds as you use your problem solving skills
  • and much more






Historic Craft Demonstrators

Take a step back in time as you learn about the low-tech life of the past.  Feel the softness of wool as you card it for spinning.  Talk to an American Indian flute maker. Watch wood carvers turn a piece of wood into something exciting. Duck as an airplane buzzes over head. Weave strips of wood with a basket maker or yarn on a loom. Demonstrators will share their skills in basket making, American Indian flute making, spinning yarn, knitting, weaving, aviation,  horn carving, wood carving, sewing and quilting.
