A Museum in a Classroom
Most people collect and display something in their lives. It might be a collection of family snaps stuck into an album, or holiday souvenirs arranged on a mantlepiece, assembled and displayed without any thought of being a 'collector'. But in the past, and occasionally today, private collections have often formed the basis of new museums.
Developing a museum in the classroom - or at home - is a valuable cross-curricular project which can be linked to the National Curriculum through most subjects, and at all levels.
