Our suite of activities provides a wide range of tried-and-tested ideas for exploring the themes, people, events and ideas of the Age of Revolution in the classroom.

Each one is linked to our Revolutionary collection of objects, artworks, literature, archive materials and songs from museums ad galleries across the UK. From talking dentures and historical ‘snap’, to Revolutionary memes, Twitter campaigns and Mystery objects, our tried and tested activities help bring the past to life and connect it to students’ lives today.

Use our activities with your students, adapt them, or delve into the collection and create your own. Our guides for teachers provide more useful hints and tips for making the most of these intriguing and fascinating representations of the past. For more in-depth ideas for using the collection, try our enquiries and Creative challenges.

All of our learning resources were authored by education specialists and historians.
