Lesson IdeasThis section contains a wide variety of lesson ideas and activities designed for you to use when teaching a thematic unit about public transportation in New York City, supported by a visit to the New York Transit Museum.  This section is divided into three age groupings, each containing suggestions for beginning your study, activities to do before visiting the Transit Museum, and follow-up ideas for use after your visit.  Activities correlate with New York City and State Performance Standards in social studies, language arts, mathematics, science and the visual arts.  Many of them encourage cooperative learning, critical thinking and observation, and interaction with primary sources.  Use the activities to develop your own complete unit or pick and choose from the ideas to enhance your current lesson plans.
