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.
