My City My Life My World activity pack for adults and children to get stuck into reimagining their city.
My City, My Life, Our World is an architectural teaching resource created for teachers on behalf of Children’s Museum London, with the aim of helping primary school students explore their experience of London locally and centrally in the context of the development of a new Children’s Museum for London.
An activity pack of cut-out urban fixtures was developed, including landmarks, vehicles, and geographical features, as well as blank templates where children can draw their own houses and buildings. Students use the cut-outs to collaboratively build their own miniature city of London in the classroom, drawing on their own local London experiences while learning about the landmarks of Central London. This activity creates the basis for students to work together, make connections to their own real world experiences of Central London, and formulate ideas about how they might develop a new Children’s Museum.
