Project: Create a mobile museum
Teach your pupils how to create a school museum with our free project guide and lesson plans.
Teach your KS1 and KS2 pupils the knowledge and skills needed to curate a school museum and encourage them to think about everyday objects from a fresh perspective.
Inspired by a collaborative research project between Kew and Royal Holloway, University of London, these lessons will help develop enquiry skills and encourage story-telling.
