Student Activity: What makes a good display?

In our exhibit, we are often brainstorming ways to capture the imaginations of our visitors and provide valuable education through well-thought out displays. This February we got to share this process with each class at the Hornby Island Community School, where we are located. The School is unique in having a Natural History Centre located on its premises and the students are always welcome to visit.

As part of their current school theme, “How things work,” each class came in and examined the displays. The students identified what attributes drew their attention, what they would change, and how they might put their own displays together. We enjoyed hearing their thoughts and seeing drawings of their favourite displays.
