M&S Biscuit Tins

Teachers' notes

This resource is part of a 'Food' theme intended to provide a broad picture of display design, using selected items from the M&S Company Archive's large collection of clothing and food packaging images. The overall aim of the Food related resources is to show changes in products throughout the history of the Company, and how this links to social history and world events.

The discussion and activity ideas page suggests ways in which the material in this resource can be used with different subjects, as prompts for classroom or homework activities.

You can also download two PPT presentations - one containing all the images in this resource, and one featuring a simple interactive game of matching the font to the correct biscuit tin.
