New Maropeng Resource packs up for grabs

  • September 02, 2012

Maropeng has just released its 2013 Resource pack and it’s filled with exciting new lessons for learners of all ages.

The pack has been carefully integrated with the South African education curriculum, and endorsed by the National Department of Education. It is brimming with fascinating and practical educational material such as worksheets and suggested activities. Teachers will be able to prepare learners before their visit and give them follow-up assignments afterwards.

The aim of the Resource pack is to assist learners at any level, studying any learning area and field, to engage with appropriate content in the exhibitions. It has been specifically designed for teachers to structure their own educational excursion in order to gain the most possible from their experience.

During the excursion learners get to explore the mysterious nooks and crannies of the Sterkfontein Caves, and discover the wonderful world of our past and future at the interactive Maropeng Visitors’ Centre, complete with underground boat ride, fun educational displays, real fossils and lots more.

Teachers can also consider a stay-over option for their learners at Maropeng’s Hominid House. The four dormitory-style rooms sleep up to 120 children or adults with separate communal bathrooms for boys and girls. Guides, teachers and leaders are accommodated in neatly appointed single rooms. Meals are served in the public dining area and packed lunches can be arranged on request.

Maropeng also offers value-for-money Matric Dance Packages at its Tumulus venue. Three menu options are available and professional, friendly staff will assist in making it a night to remember.

To book your 2013 class outing or for more information on the Hominid House and Matric Dance packages email info@maropeng.co.za or call (014) 577 9000.
