Teaching History with 100 Objects

About the project

Teaching history with 100 objects is the result of a partnership between museums across the UK and the British Museum. It has been funded by the Department for Education to help equip teachers to teach the new national history curriculum in England through the provision of high quality resources, up to date subject expertise and stimulating teaching ideas. However, its potential extends beyond England to teachers of history throughout the country and internationally.Teaching history with 100 objects consists of 100 resources based on objects selected from museums in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and from the British Museum. These Object Files may be used individually to support and enhance teachers’ current practice or can be combined to provide object-based units of study for a historical period, culture or theme.Teaching history with 100 objects harnesses the power of objects to motivate young people’s interest in history and to provide teachers with resources to inspire their students’ study of events and people in the past.If you have any questions or comments about this website, please email webteam@britishmuseum.org.Supported by
