Learning outcomes

On completion of this unit you should be able to:

  • understand how the use of objects and museum activities can enhance pupil learning;

  • explore the museum resources and support available to teachers, and the ways of accessing those services.

It gives you as a teacher the opportunity to start afresh with each child, to reach and engage with pupils in new and different ways. This unit explores practical ways in which you can make the most of the UK's extraordina

And does that have something to do with the fact that for each of these diagnoses, pharmaceut

The skill lies in reawakening your senses to the world around you, and then using what you find with discrimination.
