Led by an experienced member of the museum’s education team, this session introduces pupils to several aspects of national curriculum science. Using models and live animals from our Bug House we explore invertebrate body parts.
Pupils look at similarities and differences and how animals can be grouped together or classified. Using models, they then group together various animals based on observed similarities.
We also look at the role insects play in ecosystems and touch on other key stage aspects such as treating animals with care, growth, movement and animal senses.
We use live animals to demonstrate these concepts, allowing pupils to get up close and, using visual display technologies, to see these minibeasts in great detail.
Your pupils are sure to be enthralled by the incredible range of insects on display and will get up close and personal to spiders, insects and scorpions!
Pupils will be introduced to:
