Meet Me At Midnight - A Smithsonian Art Adventure

Meet Me At Midnight is an online art adventure produced by the Smithsonian. The purpose of Meet Me At Midnight is to introduce students in grades 3-5 to types of art, art concepts, and art vocabulary. In Meet Me At Midnight students go on three adventures within a museum to find artworks to put in a treasure chest. Along the way students will come across information about different types of artwork.

Applications for Education
Meet Me At Midnight could be a fun way for elementary school students to learn about art. Students have to read the captions in each scene which might pose a challenge for some younger students. If that is the case for your students make sure they know that they can replay most scenes before moving on to the next one.  The educators guide offers a lesson plan based on the Meet Me At Midnight adventures.
