Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where should I have the program?
A: Since our programs require plenty of space for the stations and the students we recommend a large area such as a gym or cafeteria. Setting up the stations in multiple classrooms has also worked well for some teachers.
Q: What do I need to provide?
A: You must provide us with six tables and six volunteers who can stay during the entire duration of the program. Volunteers are needed to interact, engage and supervise for each station activity. Parents, teacher assistants, and older students make great volunteers. Teachers/program facilitators should not volunteer at the stations. We want you to have the chance to walk around and experience all of the stations with your students. Volunteers should be present when the Ohio History Connection educator arrives and tables should be set up as well. The Ohio History Connection educator will have many boxes and other items to bring into the school. Please provide a clear path without stairs from our van to your program location.
Q: How many students should be at a station?
A: We require that you have no more than 6 students at a station. Students are only at the stations for six minutes so it’s important to keep the groups small.
Q: How long will each program last?
A: Each program is about an hour long. Students will be at each station for six minutes. The Ohio History Connection educator will spend about 10 minutes introducing the program to the students and 10 minutes closing the program and answering questions. We also allow for five minutes of travel time between the stations.
