Connect your classroom to the British Museum for a free live interactive workshop.
Book this workshop and your students will be taught remotely by an expert from the British Museum. Through live activities, interactive quizzes and thought-provoking questions your class will enhance their knowledge and understanding of the past. The expert will help them develop their historical enquiry skills and challenge them to think critically.
Students will explore temples from around the ancient Greek world. They will use archaeological objects to investigate what temples looked like and how they were used. They will identify the gods and goddesses worshiped and the stories told in temple decoration. Challenged to design their own temple, students will reveal that ancient Greek architecture changed their world and continues to inspire buildings around us today.
