Before running away with the circus, let’s learn about circus careers!

Have you ever wanted to run away with the circus? This tour, provided by The Ringling, explores circus careers, from clowns to cooks and everything in between! Students will use English Language Arts skills to compare and contrast historic circus jobs and artifacts, and will decide which circus career they would have if they ran away with the circus.

Teachers will meet with an experienced museum educator ahead of their class tour to customize the jobs and objects used on this tour to best fit your individual curriculum needs. Interactive technology allows for students to remain engaged throughout this 20-30 minute tour.
