Team Givan writes lesson plans and design field trips for museums and science centers--they're experienced writing lesson plans for free programs, live demonstrations, and full-length field trips.
Chris and Theresa's lesson plans and field trips are guided by the ideas of being easily run with minimal new costs each time—because they know that every museum or science center's success is hard-won. With a natural fondness for museums, they design their content to survive after having prepared the initial work—they know that as science centers or museums age, it's all too easy for lesson plans or field trips to be forgotten, or worse, become stagnant. When creating their lesson plans and field trips, Chris and Theresa work to make them verifiable—so museums or science centers, schools, and Chris and Theresa can determine if the content is meeting its goal.
Chris and Theresa have a diverse set of skills, interests, and experiences. She is skilled with field trips and lesson plans for pre-school through elementary students, as well as working with seniors. He is best with field trips and lesson plans for middle-school through college ages. Theresa studied history and Chris studied philosophy, but both have significant experience working in science-related fields and at museums and science centers.
Team Givan is located in Hutchinson, Kansas, but loves to travel!
