tells a story

Family Learning through objects in the home and in museums

Teacher's page

Every Object Tells a Story was a partnership project between MLA Yorkshire and the School of Education, University of Sheffield, with Sheffield Family Learning and the Burngreave Community Learning Campaign. Taking existing research into family objects and stories as a starting point, this resource pack offers a variety of practical activities, ideas and resources for working with family learners. It is our intention that these materials form a starting point for tutors and museum learning staff to explore and develop their own ideas around how objects, stories and museums can be used to enhance family learning opportunities.
