    Yes or no?

    Choose a favourite object and see if others can guess it by asking only questions answered ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

    Tricky…

  • Children studying a case during a supplementary school visit to the Museum of London.

    Remember, remember...

    Study a single case of objects during your visit, and then turn around and see how many objects within it you can name.

    Peep at the end to see what you forgot!

    Colour hunt!

    Everyone chooses a colour or material (remember that modern materials like plastic haven’t been around long!). Search galleries for objects the same colour or material.

    Younger children might like to look for shapes as well as colours.
