City Kits for Student Groups

The BMI is excited to offer a new educational opportunity inspired by our on-site education programs. City Kits are all-in-one activity boxes that give kids a way to experience the best parts of the BMI’s on-site programs from home.
 
Each activity kit includes hands-on, curriculum-aligned activities and primary source images, accompanied by easy-to-follow lesson plans.
 
City Kits are a great stand-alone activity, and also pair well with the BMI’s virtual field trips. City Kits are available for student groups of 10 or more. We encourage you to order the kits at least two weeks prior to your preferred delivery date.
 
To order kits email tours@thebmi.org or complete a reservation form at: bit.ly/BMIstudentexperiences.

City Kits were made possible through the support of the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore, The Edmund Eisenberg Memorial Foundation, Janet Novak, and Green Bay Packaging.


Students are encouraged to think about the different types of work involved in the process of preparing, preserving, and providing food for communities by exploring primary source images, building their own vegetable can, and flexing their math skills through steps to build a canning business. Cannery City Kits are inspired by our keystone Kids’ Cannery program.

We encourage you to order the kits at least two weeks prior to your preferred delivery date.

This was by far one of the best at-home assignments we’ve done — fun, locally and globally relevant, a learning activity that didn’t feel too much like learning. 🙂 I love that it wasn’t too complicated — sometimes simpler is better. Parent

 


How does light help us to see and communicate? In this STEM activity kit, students explore several methods for communicating with light and sound, test their skills using Morse Code, and create their own light communication device.

Thank you for brainstorming a quality workaround for virtual learning. This gives me hope! Teacher
