What are sculptures? How are they made? Who makes them? Students will uncover the answers to these questions as they investigate our diverse collection of sculptures throughout the museum.
Museum Teacher Programs
Museum teacher programs are object-based, whole-class experiences that encourage students to investigate primary and secondary sources to learn more about specific histories in the American West.
Students will explore Autry galleries and investigate replica objects to answer the question: What helps a cowboy do his job?
Students will answer the question “How did the Tongva use their knowledge of the land and the environment to survive?” by analyzing natural resources and human made artifacts from three different environments.
Students will use replica objects to determine which jobs were more successful during the California gold rush. PLEASE NOTE: We no longer offer gold panning with this program.
Students will determine how and why people traveled along six western trails across the American West during the mid-1800 by using maps and replica artifacts.
