The Animals workshop offers students the opportunity to discover how animals have adapted to different habitats and climates. The session uses our collection of handling taxidermy to help children learn for themselves about adaption and the importance of an animal’s habitat to how it looks and evolves. Whether your students are learning about local wildlife or more exotic creatures we can offer an experience that will get them engaged in the natural world.
The workshop is complemented by a teacher-led gallery session using our innovative and interactive ‘Habitat Bags’. Children can investigate the Living Planet or Natural Northumbria galleries by using the bags to explore the special features of eight different animals, from red squirrels to polar bears.
