Object-Based Learning Programs (Pre-K - Second Grades)

Object-based learning programs create an educational atmosphere in which objects become central to the lesson. These programs are designed for students in pre-K through second grade. Special objects and artifacts will be available for the students to touch and hold, providing multiple ways to connect their minds with the subject matter. Each program will include classroom activities and a tour of the exhibits and will last an hour and 15 minutes.
Coin Collecting and Campaign Buttons
September – November 2014
President Clinton’s collection includes an impressive number of military coins and campaign buttons. Students will view and touch replica military challenge coins and authentic campaign buttons from the 1992 and 1996 presidential campaigns. Following the classroom activity, students will tour the exhibit and find the military challenge coins and campaign buttons on display. The docent-led tour also includes the Oval Office, Life in the White House, and the current temporary exhibit.
Holidays at the White House
December 2014 – February 2015
Each year, the White House hosts many events that celebrate our nation’s diversity. Students will learn more about these holiday traditions by viewing and touching the types of objects that are used during these celebrations. Following the classroom activity, the students will find similar artifacts in the permanent exhibit, Life in the White House. The docent-led tour also includes the Oval Office and the current temporary exhibit.
National Symbols
March – May 2015
Why is the bald eagle a national symbol of this great nation? Why are there 50 stars on the U.S. flag? Bring your students to the Clinton Center to learn these answers and much more. Students will be introduced to national symbols through a hands-on classroom activity. They will find national symbols – the bald eagle, the American flag, the Presidential Seal, the Statue of Liberty, and the White House – while exploring the permanent exhibit. The docent-led tour also includes the Oval Office, Life in the White House, and the current temporary exhibit.
