States of Mind learning resource
We've created a digital resource to help teachers prepare for self-guided visits to the second part of our year-long exhibition on consciousness, 'States of Mind'. Given the abstract nature of this exhibition, as well as its links to advanced syllabi, we've developed these activities for students aged 16-18 years.
The complete resource includes:
- subject specific in-gallery activities that encourage students to engage with all sections of the exhibition from an interdisciplinary viewpoint
- preparation and follow-up activities that can be completed in the classroom
- curriculum links and clear instructions on how to use these resources
Each resource has been split into separate PDFs so that you can download the section you need. Alternatively, you can also download all of each gallery’s resources in one PDF, which also includes a gallery plan.
Please also look at our Visiting Guidelines to ensure you get the most out of your visit:

Gallery activity cards
We have developed subject specific cards which are designed to be photocopied double-sided and then cut to make cards; you may also like to laminate them. They are intended for students to complete in pairs or small groups and to form the basis of further discussion or work back at school.
