I think the last sentence says it all. The students had the freedom to explore. Often times, I think these types are too scheduled to let the students explore in their own way. The trip in the article sounded great - for all involved.


My suggestion would be to have the kids do a type of mash-up. Have them take 3 or 4 characters from the museum and intertwine their stories into a form of alternative history.

I was on a business trip to DC and had 2 hours to myself. I had to see Archie Bunker's chair so I chose the American History Museum. Obviously there are a lot of wonderful exhibits there (in particular the Abraham Lincoln and American Flag exhibits), but please don't lose Archie's exhibit! It almost looked like it was shoved in a corner, and I think that series defines America in so many ways.
