EDUCATION

The Terramar Museum cannot wait to show your class our wonderful collection. Experience the stories of the past based on the archaeological findings in this area.Let us make the children curious about history; make them enthusiastic about culture.

***

In the Terramar Museum, we believe in the principle of multiple-sensory learning. This means that our education program is filled with content that touches the head, heart and hands.

 

This means that:

  1. Head

We try to motivate the students by telling them stories about the past. These stories will be told by excellent storytellers that will make the archaeological artefacts come to life and invoke their imagination.

 

  1. Heart

Our museum needs to captivate the audience; make them aware of the stories of the past, present and future. By connecting the narratives to the lives of the children, history will come alive and meaningful. We want the children not only to think about their culture when they are in the museum; they need to take the stories home and share them with their friends and family.

 

  1. Hands

Everything is more fun when you can do things in the museum. If you are planning to come to the museum, we try to make the children actively involved in the collection by making them play and create. The degree of activity is up to the teacher. The museum will try to appeal to the several types of learning styles (sensory, intuitive, kinesthetic) to make the activity as compelling as possible.
