Foreign Bodies: Common Ground teacher's pack

Learning resource

Online teachers' pack: Foreign Bodies, Common Ground

A learning resource designed to support Key Stage 4 and 5 student visits to our past exhibition Foreign Bodies, Common Ground. This cross-curricular pack has art, science and geography-themed pre and post visit suggestions for work in the classroom .

The pack includes suggestions for pre- and post-visit activities, a gallery plan and glossary, and a choice of trails for use in the exhibition.

We have also produced a visual resource that can be downloaded and used to support pre- and post-visit activities.

Further down the page you will find a sample risk assessment and guidelines for student visits to Wellcome Collection.

Please note that all trails and maps need to be printed out before your visit, and students will need to bring notepads or sketchbooks to use in the gallery.

Book your visit by emailing groups@wellcome.ac.uk.
