A lesson matrix has been provided to guide you through the activities and the associated exhibit chapters. The matrix is organized by chapter title, but also includes a focus question and brief overview of the lessons activity(s). The focus question connects the lesson activities to the content of the exhibit and offers a tool to hold a summary discussion with the students after the activity is completed. Alternatively, teachers can use the focus question to guide an independent student investigation into each chapter.
