This lesson has been designed to complement the Local History Project suggested for Term 1, and can cover 3 of the required 7 hours. It is a practical activity where the learners are taught some basic skills needed to set up a small museum display, using objects from the Education Museum’s collection. The lesson begins with a presentation on the local history of your school’s area, with notes for the teacher’s future use. We cover vocabulary to do with museum displays; grouping and selecting different kinds of information; identifying objects from the past & present and their use; interpreting/comparing old and new photographs; tips for arranging and displaying material; making labels; and being creative and innovative.
