Discover & Learn

As part of the Power of Stories programme in Ipswich, a variety of sessions and activities were held for children visiting the exhibition.

The resources we produced for the original exhibition are still downloadable for free from this page.

Free resources to download (KS2)

Designed by comic artist Dan Malone, these activity packs support children to make their own comics, think about the objects on display and explore the exhibition.

Gallery visit pack

A pack of short activities to prepare children to visit the exhibition, including beautiful illustrations of museum objects, a word search, and a trail for use during their visit to the exhibition.

Make your own comic

A step-by-step guide to making your own comic. Children start by copying Dan’s comic about Elektroboy and Speedgirl and develop their skills to create characters, plot and designs as they progress through the guide. Best as a pre- or post-visit resource.

Ipswich black history comic

A specially commissioned piece of comic art which tells the story of Ipswich’s Windrush generation and the African and Caribbean contribution to multicultural Ipswich.
