Grades: 5-8. Offered Monday-Friday. Explore how early Americans in Philadelphia dealt with the dreaded yellow fever epidemic of 1793 in this interactive, hands-on program. Students will learn about the Wistar-Haines family and about how early American medicine did and did not help protect people from yellow fever.
Grades: 9 and above. What goes into planning a museum exhibition? What are key questions to think of when planning one? Learn from the curators and educators who help put together exhibitions and create your own exhibition in this activity.
Grades: Middle school and above. The APS also offers specialized experiences by working directly with you in constructing programs around what you are currently doing in the classroom.
