A range of new free teaching resources are now available to schools visiting Madame Tussauds in London.
The attraction has created a collection of new resource packs, which have been developed in conjunction with practicing teachers.
Each pack is linked to a specific subject. Resources are on offer for Art & Design, Design Technology, History and Business Studies
Each one is also tailored to Key Stage. So for example, there are packs available on Key Stage 1 & 2 History, Key Stage 3 & 4 History, Key Stage 1 & 2 Art & Design, and Key Stage 3 & 4 Art & Design, and so on.
The packs give ideas for linking a visit to Madame Tussauds to the curriculum and include ideas for lesson plans.
Plus, they include pupil task sheets, to help teachers make the most of the curriculum links on the day of the visit.
The resources also provide ideas for linking the learning on the day to the wider curriculum back in the classroom.
Packs can be downloaded from the Madame Tussauds’ website. Other benefits available to schools visiting the attraction include free planning visits, free teacher places and free risk assesments.
