Simple Activities Inspired by Museum Objects

Resource created by Leeds Museums and Galleries | Leeds City Museum


The Museum Moments powerpoint offers simple activities that can be done at a social distance, using images and inspiration from Leeds Museums and Galleries collection. It can also be used as part of a Recovery Curriculum.

Can your group make the funny face of a clockwork toy dog, or pose like a taxidermied tiger?

Embedded in the powerpoint are links to some short videos: discover facts about the Dodo bird with a catchy song, and challenge children to make up their own simple animal songs. To access these, tick the 'enable external content' box on the pop up when the powerpoint is opened, or just copy and paste the URLs into your browser.

We hope you’ll enjoy some fun museum moments in your classroom.
