Ancient Worlds

Description

In this programme Year 7 pupils are treated to a visit to the World Museum in Liverpool as an introduction to Key Stage 3 history.

Teacher Gareth Rogers from Weatherhead High School on the Wirral chose a day of Egyptian-themed sessions to make best use of the collections his local museum has to offer.

On the trip they find out about mummification through role-playing, handle Egyptian treasures and practice writing hieroglyphics.

To make the visit memorable and get material for further study, the pupils take digital cameras to the museum and record what they see.

Back in school the next day the pupils develop their ICT skills by preparing a PowerPoint presentation about the day and show it to their classmates.
