School Visits

SCHOOLS AT LE CASSISSIUM

Le Cassissium’s stuff offers a range of different activities that will help you explore the museum in a vivid, fun and educational way. We prefer exchanging information about the blackcurrant with our young visitors using sensory approaches. This should allow every pupil and every teacher to have a rewarding visit that is adapted to their needs and purpose.

We offer visits according to the level and the age of pupils. The purpose of these visits will come to complete that of the school. Starting from the museum, the visit will contribute in whetting the curiosity of young people as they discover the traditions and the know-how of Burgundians.

Le Cassissium wants to make sure that you are comfortable during the whole visit, that’s why we provide a range of materials in order to guarantee you an excellent visit:

PRIMARY SCHOOLS

We offer pupils fromYear 1 to Year 6 a special sensorial pathway that allows them to discover the fruits. Being in small groups, their knowledge can evolve within the museum.

Visites scolaires - dégustation

It’s ideal for children in primary school. The senses of these pupils will be awakened through 4 interactive workshops that are especially designed for school groups.

An educational booklet will be given to every teacher. It contains information about the different workshops. This should also help them prepare in advance their visit at Le Cassissium. In the booklet you’ll also find details about the different topics that you can discuss with your pupils such as: the difference between fruits and vegetables, the nutritional value of the fruits…etc

A different booklet will be handed to the children along with pencils so that they can answer all the questions as a part of the interactive games that we propose, in addition to the blind tasting.
