A video, made by the pupils themselves, introducing what schools can do at the Natural History Museum.
Watch the video before booking to help you plan your trip and show pupils the exciting activities they can do at the Museum.
Some of the activities shown are only available for certain age groups. Go to www.nhm.ac.uk/education to see which activities are available for your Key Stage.
The interactive film at the Natural History Museum will transport your students back in time to explore the tree of life.
Our world-class scientists will support your teaching of evolution and natural selection by explaining how life has evolved. Using cutting edge computer technology, you will share a room with dinosaurs, early mammals and our hominid ancestors. Your students will receive virtual gifts as evidence of our evolutionary past.
This is for a 100 minute lesson, but there are two tasks which could be split over two 50 min lessons.
The Timeline Poster is one activity and the Darwin text based activity is the second activity.
The text may be too textual for low ability or low reading age students, my low reading age group had an LSA and they were ACE!
