Teachers corner

The Children's Museum of the Lowcountry has been a favorite field trip destination for students and teachers for years. The Children's Museum provides exhibits, enriching learning experiences and inquiry-based self guided programs. A team of professional educators design Museum experiences around South Carolina's academic standards and the National standards in science, math, social studies, language arts and the visual and performing arts to expand the Museum visit into a cross-curricular experience. These activities are created for Grades Pre K-5 and are free with Museum admission..

    After walking and walking for what seemed like ages on a muggy day, finally arrived only to find out it was closed on Monday's. My bad for not checking in advance but a little disappointed that a museum would be closed on a Monday. May go back tomorrow to try our luck again.
