Session summary

The overall aim of the session is to provide school groups with an opportunity to develop and apply their scientific enquiry skills and knowledge of the natural world in the unique setting of the Manchester Museum. Focusing on rainforests and through a combination of gallery tasks and object‐based investigations, pupils will:

  • Explore the ways in which organisms are adapted to their habitats
  • Design a creature that is adapted to live in a particular environment

Gallery time

Please note: this session incorporates an element of self-led gallery time, during which the group will be asked to complete a number of challenges.

If you are planning to spend time exploring the Museum either before or after your session,  please contact the School Bookings Coordinator to check gallery availability.
