Make a museum
Connected Earth's cross curricular Make a Museum is created especially for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 students, particularly those studying English, history, ICT and drama. With the help of Curator Dave select, interpret and present your own gallery from any of eight themes using documents, photographs, films, advertising, objects and Heritage Voices that bring the history of communications to life.
