If you could put your life in a box, what would you include? What would be inside the box of a Roman emperor or soldier? an important scientist? or a person who lived through a devastating natural disaster? And what if you were an abolitionist and wanted to show that slavery was wrong and unnecessary, how would you create and display your evidence?

Museum Box is a free online tool that allows students to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual online box. It allows multimedia content and plenty of scope for students' creativity.

This workshop will:
  • explore this online tool - how it works and how to manage it in the classroom
  • give examples of its use
  • investigate ways to integrate it into curriculum areas
  • look at assessing student work

Museum Box is suitable for students Years 3 - 10.
