Museum piece

The British Museum is following the success of its website, COMPASS, with a parallel site for children.

It contains information on around 800 key objects linked to both printable and online activities, and features tours on specific subjects or themes, such as animal mummies, toys and games, or warfare. Pupils can ask an expert by emailing curators. Teachers will find useful national curriculum links to art, literacy and numeracy as well as history.
