Resources

ECHO can be overwhelming to young children and their adults that are charged with navigating them through the exhibits. Generating a list of questions and deciding on a couple of things to see based on the interests of the group before your field trip can be helpful for focusing attention and feeling accomplished at the end of the day. Below are activity guides that offer suggestions on how to organize your ECHO visit. They include suggestions for pre-visit activities, what to do while at ECHO and post-visit activities. Be sure to plan for plenty of time for play in Champ Lane!
