Resources for Teachers - DIY/Into Action

Our range of D.I.Y. resources provide teaching strategies for you to use with your pupils in the galleries. As we do not know your pupils, or the specific aims of your visit, these ideas may need adapting, but we hope they will act as a springboard. 

The Into Action activity sheets are designed for pupils to use in the galleries. They can be used with our DIY resources, or to follow up museum teacher led sessions. Please feel free to adapt and change them to suit your pupils' needs.
