Pre and Post-Visit Materials

In an effort to better incorporate your field trip to Winterthur, or our outreach program in your classroom, we have created a variety of pre- and post-visit materials to use with your students before and after their Winterthur experience. When you open the activity it will be titled either PRE-VISIT, POST-VISIT, or PRE/POST-VISIT  to suggest when it is most appopriate to use the activity with your students. All files are PDFs.
