Site: City Museum
This workshop is led by museums staff.
- Look at objects from the Life on Earth gallery
- Use senses to explore the gallery (sight, sound, smell, touch)
- Design a home for one animal.
This one hour workshop looks at the Museum's natural history collection, and encourages pupils to consider the characteristics of four animals when designing a home for them. The workshop starts in the Life on Earth gallery where the pupils will explore the space in four groups - looking at the sounds, smells, sights and textures in the gallery.
Next the groups will be told which animal they will focus on (polar bear, tuna fish, stag beetle or parrot) and they will draw a picture of these animals thinking with their group leader about where these animals might live.
Finally the pupils will make a group collage picture of a home for each animal considering shelter, food and what sort of colours the home should be to enable their animal to hide.
Collage pictures can be taken back to school.
