A History Treasure Hunt/The Time Capsule
http://www.baylink.org/lessons/macmem1_r.html

General Douglas MacArthur's life provides the theme for a "treasure hunt" though the Museum, using symbols for artifacts to follow a map and find those objects in the nine galleries. Students will also learn about the history of Norfolk from 1830 to the present. This is a hands-on experience using a map to find directions inside the museum. Students will view nine rooms in the Museum, find information where appropriate by reading labels, and view many types of American, Japanese and Philippine art. (Grades Pre-K – 3)
