Second Grade Visit 2017-05-19T17:24:32+00:00

Second Grade Visit

The Glencoe Historical Society is pleased to welcome the second graders from South School for a visit to our museum on May 24, 2017.  The visit is the culmination of the students’ “My Community” unit of study featuring the GHS’s award winning “What’s So Great About Glencoe?” activity book.

When the student arrive at the museum on May 24th, parent chaperones will accompany a small group of students as each group visits six designated sites.  A GHS docent will be stationed at each site and give a short presentation to help each group enjoy that site.  A bell will ring as a signal for each group to move to the next site.  The six sites include:

IN THE GARDEN
Site #1 – The Victory Garden

AT 377 PARK AVENUE
Site #2 – Please Touch Table A
Site #3 – Glencoe’s Two Trains
Site #4 – Eklund Tool Room

ON THE PATIO
Site #5 – Please Touch Table B

AT 375 PARK AVENUE
Site #6 – Frank Lloyd Wright

We have prepared a Parent Information Guide with a map of the museum, background details on each site and suggested questions for parents who would like to continue discussing any of these topics with their children.  You can download a copy of the Guide by clicking on link below.

We hope that everyone will be intrigued by their visit to our museum and we invite all our guests to return for a deeper experience.  The museum is open every Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. or by appointment.  It is best, however, to call ahead (847-835-0040) to make sure that we will be able to provide you with the best and most productive visit.
