Games for the classroom using objects from the museum

Challenge a friend or do a whole class activity in which mystery objects are unveiled and identified.

Pairing objects – the old-fashioned game of Matching Pairs, or Pelmenism, takes on a new twist! Players match old objects with their modern equivalent.

What’s this? – Look at a mystery object and read the clues – can you guess what it was used for? This can be a whole class activity or alternatively it can be done in groups or pairs.
