ABOUT THIS SECTION

Here you will find a number of worksheets and activities that you can use with your class in the British Galleries. The activities focus on History and Art and Design but also contain many strong cross-curricular threads. The activities can be adapted for both primary and secondary school students. Each activity provides ideas for:

  • Preparation work at school
  • Activities to do in the Museum
  • Follow-up work back in the classroom.

Downloadable worksheets relating to each gallery task are available on this site and will help pupils record information in the Museum. Each activity also includes detailed supporting information and associated images.
