HUGE HISTORY LESSON
The British Museum and TES collaborated to launch the Huge History Lesson. An ambitious new partnership linking the world’s largest network of teachers at TES with museums around the country. The Huge History Lesson is a unique creative competition designed to unlock the incredible stories to be found in museum objects and collections. The project challenges children at both primary and secondary level to develop and submit an inspiring lesson plan based on an object from a local or national museum.
We created an introductory film featuring Dan Snow, Neil MacGregor and George the Poet exploring their favourite objects from the British Museum. The film challenges students to think about how objects can open up both personal stories and world histories.
In addition to the call to action film, we created a film of George the Poet delivering a spoken-word poem about his object, the Benin Bronzes, watch below.
