A vis­it to the Maropeng Vis­i­tor Cen­tre and the Sterk­fontein Caves is a rich edu­ca­tion­al expe­ri­ence. With the help of a cur­ricu­lum-linked resource pack, brim­ming with fas­ci­nat­ing and prac­ti­cal edu­ca­tion­al mate­r­i­al such as work­sheets and sug­gest­ed activ­i­ties, teach­ers will be able to pre­pare learn­ers before they vis­it the Cra­dle of Humankind, and to give them fol­low-up assign­ments afterwards.

The pack is care­ful­ly inte­grat­ed with the South African edu­ca­tion cur­ricu­lum, and has been endorsed by the Nation­al Depart­ment of Basic Education.

Learn­ers at any lev­el, study­ing in any area or field, will be able to engage with appro­pri­ate con­tent in the exhibitions.

While the guides at Maropeng have been trained to use the mate­r­i­al and are able to assist when nec­es­sary, the resource pack has been specif­i­cal­ly designed for teach­ers to struc­ture their own edu­ca­tion­al excur­sion in order to gain the most from their experience.

Please click on the links below to down­load the edu­ca­tion pack for each learn­ing phase, as well as the teacher’s guide and the intro­duc­tion to Maropeng for teachers.
