Primary School Education Pack  

Our Education Pack was approved by the Istanbul Region of the State Education Department in December 2002, and is now available for use by interested schools. With the aid of this pack, teachers and students can not only learn in much more detail about selected objects and displays, but can also be taught to consider the objects in wider contexts - for example history, sociology, and the environment.

The education pack is divided into three sections: Introduction: Contains practical information about visiting the museum, explains the value of museums in general, suggests ideas for classroom-based activities before and after the visit, and explains how the objects described in the pack relate to the Turkish education curriculum.

Teachers' pages: The main part of the pack, this focuses on the key objects and gives the following information about each one: a general introduction with illustrations, suggested questions and answers, discussion points, and suggested activities to do in the museum and in the classroom.

Students' pages: The pack also contains a booklet that can be copied and given to each child, containing a number of activities - related to the objects in the teacher pages above - that can be carried out at the museum during the visit.
