Bird Brains – Musical Mynahs
Site: Lotherton Hall
This workshop is led by museums staff.
Why do birds sing and how do they do it? Fun activities and an interactive tour of the Lotherton Bird Garden exploring sound production through playing and listening to musical instruments.
Explore, discover and experiment. Use the workshop to support creating and controlling sounds in Music, investigating life processes in Science and developing speaking an listening skills.
Workshop is supported by the Carnival of Colour Colouring Book, with 12 exotic birds from our collection, line-drawn for your children to colour in at school or at the Bird Garden, with information about each and a world map to plot where they come from.
The Gascoigne family who owned Lotherton travelled extensively as part of the diplomatic service. Why not visit the Hall at the same time to explore the different collections from around the world? Or come in the study the pianos in the Drawing Room?
