The School Trip Community White Logo


Explore three different habitats and the animals that live there. Hands-on and sensory elements will help students to explore these very different environments for themselves.

Join Horniman Museum and Gardens on an imaginary journey, taking you to a coral reef, a desert and the Arctic. Explore the different habitats using your senses and learn about the animals that live there in this tactile handling session.

Sessions will encourage children to:
Compare three different habitats
Experience and/or respond to a range of stimuli
Touch and explore museum objects
Take turns and share
Make independent and supported choices
Try something new
