4th Graders Explore Early Baltimore Industrial Life

Posted On: 10/25/2016 4:09 PM

   
4th Graders Explore Early Baltimore Industrial Life
Posted 03/20/2015 10:46AM



The fourth grade classes visited the Baltimore Museum of Industry this week. Each student was able to participate in three different activities to give them a hands on perspective of the industrial and technological heritage of Baltimore.


Kids' MotorWorks · Students learned how Henry Ford revolutionized car-making by introducing the assembly line into the automotive industry. Each student took a seat along the line and performed a single job, as the group worked together to build replicas of a 1914 moving van housed in the museum. Students experienced how an assembly line works and discovered that each task is equally important in creating a finished product. Each worker took home his or her very own truck.


Kids' Cannery · As workers in Mr. Platt's 1883 oyster cannery, students became managers, foremen, can makers, printers, labelers, shuckers and fillers. They learned about the training and wages of skilled and unskilled workers. Students were paid for their work in brass tokens that they redeem in the company store, where they quickly grasped the value of a day's work. All students took home a can of "oysters" that they helped to create.


Design It! · Long before LegosTM or Erector sets®, children used wooden boards, tree limbs, cardboard boxes, blocks and other everyday objects to construct buildings, vehicles and gadgets. In this guided program, students were given a working design with select materials and asked to engineer a successful project. Working in small groups, students were assigned challenges and learned about experimenting, making observations, asking questions and explaining results.


Everyone had a fun working together on their projects at the Baltimore Museum of Industry!
