1. Video. This clip introduces the pupils to the museum and transports them to the future, to the year 2053, and the inauguration of the government’s latest museum FOSSIL and its new exhibition, Beyond the Fossil Era.
After the video, instruct the pupils to close their eyes and reflect on:
2. Museum objects. Pick an object that might intrigue the pupils, such as the fake grass. Show the image of the object and read the story out loud. Ensure that the pupils understand that the story is fictional. Let the pupils discuss the story based on this question:
3. Slide show. Change does not just occur, it is made. Show the slideshow “How do societies change?” This slide show introduces key tools capable of accelerating societal change. Let the pupils discuss which of these are used in the story about fake grass.
Instruct the pupils to read the timeline (1849–2053) and the stories of different objects in the museum. Share the link below with the pupils so that they can access them directly from their devices:
Discuss the timeline and the objects, first in pairs and then as a group. Kick off the discussion with these questions:
Let the pupils look through the objects and their related stories in the museum by clicking on the images.
Give the pupils time to study a few objects in detail so that they can retell the story based on the images. Then let them present the story, either to a few classmates or to the entire class.
Divide the class into smaller groups (2–3 pupils) and ask them to consider other objects that should be included in the exhibition.
Hand out and brief the pupils on the assignment. Share the link with the pupils so that they can access it from their devices:
Click on an object to read the story behind it!

The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation promotes education for sustainable development (ESD) and supports schools in taking a holistic approach to sustainability issues. We produce educational materials, offer teacher training workshops and participate in partnership projects to develop methods for ESD.
