Museum on the Mound is excited to offer an interdisciplinary introduction to money. Even digitally, we aim to facilitate learning by doing.
Our workshops have been designed to encourage pupils to think critically and creatively through exploration and discovery. Free handling materials will be sent in advance to make our workshops as sensory and engaging as possible. Each workshop is live and interactive: Workshops are led via Microsoft Teams by a Money expert; a member of the Museum team who will encourage curiosity and promote discussion. Workshops last about 30 minutes and can be adapted to meet the needs and interests of your class.
Workshops available: What is Money?: Pupils will use their investigative skills to explore different things people have used as money in other countries, and in the past. Money-wise: Pupils will analyse old bank advertisements promoting saving and discuss money sayings. They will be encouraged to think creatively and share personal finance tips.
