Thinking Routine Thursdays 
Presented by: National Museum of Women in the Arts

Thinking Routine Thursdays are designed for and offered exclusively to third through fifth graders. Museum educators lead virtual discussions using Harvard Project Zero's Thinking Routines to engage students in an active process of learning about women artists and their artwork. Students look closely at several developmentally appropriate artworks, contribute respectfully to open-ended discussions, pose questions, share their opinions without fear of judgement, participate in a related activity, and make connections between visual art and their world. These experiences engage students’ observation and inference skills; improve vocabulary; foster social emotional learning capacities; and introduce various artistic techniques and media.
