Space Trail for KS2



This resource has been designed to help teachers and adult helpers to guide their children to space-related exhibits in the Museum's galleries.

Before the visit

Print the trail - you will need one copy for each of your group leaders. You do not need to print one for your children.

Brief your adult helpers about how to use the trail.

No other pre-planning or equipment is required.

During the visit

There's information on each page to help you find six different exhibits, then use the questions and activities to encourage observation and discussion about the objects and the science underlying them.

The trail can be followed in any order, so you and your children can explore at your own pace.
