Choose from Two Festivals!
Environmental Science Festival
With up to 15 fun, nature-related interactive exhibits, students will explore and learn about the environment by making a water cycle bracelet, creating a constellation viewer, exploring animal and plant adaptation, using chemistry to launch rockets, excavating the past, and creating art, animation, and more.
Grades 2 and Under
The Museum will serve an entire grade level at one time by filling your multi-purpose room with hands-on activities and explorations of art processes, materials, techniques, and projects based on the 2nd grade Common Core Art Standards. Students will experiment with animation, origami, watercolor, pointillism, architecture, collage, color mixing, and more.
About the Festival
Each Peanuts Naturally Festival is a partnership between the Schulz Museum and host school or site. The Schulz Museum provides a staff member and all of the exhibits and materials for your students to explore hands-on art and science at your location. You provide appropriate space, tables, and 10 – 15 volunteers to facilitate each exhibit. The Museum and school will work together to determine an appropriate schedule for each day based on your needs.
SCHEDULE: The Festival serves up to 150 people at a time through a series of one or more sessions (approx. 45 – 90 minutes each, according to your school’s schedule), and can stay at your school for a few hours or a few days. When reserving your Festival, keep in mind that the Museum will need access to your site 90-minutes before the start of your Festival to set up and one-hour after the Festival for break down. Reservations should be made at least three weeks in advance.
