List of workshops for grades 4-6

  • Once upon a time in a small town 
    We invite you for an encounter with Jewish culture during which you will learn about its typical objects, traditions and symbols. At the core exhibition, pupils will solve tasks divided into groups. They will find out how a synagogue, a tavern or a Jewish home looked like; they will also listen to the story of a certain Jewish family, and will perform short scenes as characters from a distant past. 
  • Children should be seen but not heard. On children’s rights according to Janusz Korczak 
    The saying goes: „children should be seen but not heard”… Is that really true though? During the workshop, we will encourage children to get acquainted with their basic rights. Pupils will learn about Janusz Korczak and the atmosphere and rules binding at the Children’s Home which he ran. They will also tour selected sections of the core exhibition solving tasks related to the workshop’s topic.
