National History Museum Treasure Trail

This activity is designed to get students to focus and observe the items in the National History Museum.
Suitable for 11-16 years olds. Answers are included.
I have put together 2 tasks for them to complete in teams of 3-4 students. The whole quiz/treasure trail will take ~1.5 - 2 hours dependent on the competiviteness of the group and the team working skills.

Task 1:
Students need to find the answers to 33 questions in various parts of the museum and complete the answer sheet provided.

Task 2:
Students need to take 6 team selfies by 6 different objects in the museum.

The answer sheet needs to be submitted to a teacher and these will be marked and the group with the highest score will win a prize. The selfies also need to be shown t a member of staff at the end of the trip.

Feedback was extremely positive from my students - 15 year old boys. They really enjoyed it and learned something too!
