In fulfilling its mission to foster understanding and appreciation of Frost's life and work, the museum offers a special interactive tour designed for students in grades 4 and above. Through the use of photographs, visualization and word games, students will learn about basic elements of poetry and the process of creating it. They will engage in interpretative readings of Frost's poem, "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," in the very room where he wrote it. Students will become aware of Frost's unique use of poetic form, style and subject matter to express feelings we all share. Student tours are 1 hour in length and can accommodate up to 40 students. One chaperone per five students is requested.
