The museum staff challenged students to choose an item from one of the museum collections, and use it as a basis to design a humanities lesson for a class of primary school children from Years 1-6, promoting creative learning.
Students worked in small groups to design an accompanying lesson plan and create a supporting presentation to the museum staff.
The museums aim to use the lesson plans and activities devised by ARU students as part of their work with local schools in their regions.
Course Leader Gemma Whittaker and BA Primary Education Studies student Erika Szabo attended the Live Brief introduction session with staff at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.
