Pre and Post Visit Learning Resources

Welcome to Simply Schools’ learning resources. We know that a class visit to one of our museums is just part of the learning process so we wanted to provide teachers with the tools to plan learning before and after they visit.

Click on your chosen topic area below to reveal sub sections, and for each subsection we have created a list of the best links for lesson ideas, activities, games and information for use back in the classroom or before you visit us. Don’t forget to tell us how useful the links are!

Plus we have created a whole learning experience around the subject of the ‘Built Environment’. These are self led lesson guides for ten museums in Pennine Lancashire, covering the museum and its local area. This section has activity cards to download rather than external web links but we would welcome your feedback on how useful the resources are and whether your pupils enjoyed the activities.
