Resource Pack

Download the rate card here

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 Education.

Learners at any level, studying any learning area and 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 possible 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 introduction to Maropeng for teachers.
