Students use the collection objects and accompanying notes to research a historical topic or theme linked to the Age of Revolution. They write a series of statements – some true, some false – and give them to a partner to guess which is which.

Students can be encouraged to find true facts that are unusual or hard to believe. Their false statements must be believable and historically accurate based on age-appropriate knowledge. Can they trick their partner..?
