    FAQs

    Learn how your students will benefit, how to earn prizes, and more!

    How does it work?

    After you sign up, the Museum will mail you a project toolkit, including a progress chart and 100 progress stickers. You must first complete the Get in the Scrap! lesson plan to provide your students historical context before continuing to other activities.

    Once you complete the lesson, explore the Activities List and decide which ones you would like your students to do. Each activity is assigned a point value. When you complete the activity, use the stickers provided (one sticker = one point) to add to your progress chart.

    Participating teachers will receive a Get in the Scrap! canvas tote bag after their classroom reaches 100 points.
