Schools and Kindergartens

The museum offers a variety of tutorials for different ages. There are two parts to each tutorial: a guided tour around the museum and supplementary activity in the museum’s classrooms.
The subject of the tutorials is tailored according to the educational content provided by the Ministry of Education for different age groups, but we also offer additional topics. You are invited to contact us via email: [email protected]

For Kindergarteners:

Wonder Room
An engaging tutorial full of games, during which the children will become acquainted with the world within the museum, take a closer look at a variety of taxidermy animals, get up close and personal with the animal kingdom and learn to distinguish between reptiles, birds and mammals.

For Grades 1-3:
Noah’s Ark
*Suitable for the curriculum on ecosystems, diversity in nature, animals and living environments, as well as the biblical studies syllabus.
In this tutorial, the students embark on an exploratory journey in which they step into Noah’s shoes and try to independently tackle the challenges he faced: how to differentiate between males and females? It’s not always that simple… How to design a “menu” for herbivores? And carnivores? And Omnivores? And how does this relate to the physical structure of the animals?
Length of the activity: Approximately two hours. Up to four classes may participate simultaneously.

For Grades 4-6:
Environmental Adaptation
Each animal is well adapted to the environment in which it lives, otherwise it would not be able to survive. Through a tour of the museum and a series of experiments at the study center we will discover how these adaptations manifest: we will familiarize ourselves with physiological adaptations that allow for efficient movement through the air and water, and behavioral adaptations that make it possible for animals to survive extreme heat and hostile conditions in the desert.
Length of the activity: Approximately two hours. Up to two classes may participate simultaneously.

For Middle School:
Light and Sight
*Suitable for the curriculum on energy – radiation, systems and processes in living things, and healthy lifestyles.
We rely so much on our sense of sight, but how does it actually work?
During an exploratory tour of the museum we will examine a human’s sense of sight as well as that of various animals, learn about the parts of the eye and discover why we’re unable to see colors in the dark. In the study center we will conduct experiments through which we will learn about various phenomena relating to light, and we will prepare a dark chamber (camera obscura).
Length of the activity: Approximately two hours. Up to two classes may participate simultaneously.

For Visitors with Special Needs:
The Man and the Living Museum offers many of the tutorials specially adapted for visitors with special needs. The activities are tailored to suit the needs of the students upon coordination with the kindergarten/school.
