Our exhibition activities provide a scaffold for your students' learning within the exhibitions. Use our conversation starters to ignite creative dialogue between students, or our exhibition discoveries to help students engage critically with the specimens and objects in the galleries. Both can be downloaded, printed and brought in during your visit or accessed from a mobile device while at the Museum.


Conversation starters

Conversation starters aim to ignite creative dialogue between students and their teachers. Through freedom of choice, fun questions and quick activities, students are able to investigate specimens and objects through a new lens.



Exhibition discoveries

Exhibition discoveries aim to get students engaging critically with the specimens and objects in the galleries. With thought provoking questions and prompts, these cards can be used to guide your self-paced visit and reflect as a group on what you experienced.
