A class project? Preparing for your field trip? The Passchendaele Museum has put together an educational suitcase especially for schools that introduces pupils to the First World War in a unique way.

The museum suitcase offers a selection of objects you can use to tell the story of the Great War in your classroom. You can even use it to build your own mini-exhibition. Besides the talking objects with their story, there is also a reading fiction story, a goose board and a music CD. So plenty to engage with history in an interesting and varied way.

What’s in the suitcase?

The tangible objects give pupils an idea of how something feels, smells or how much the soldiers’ equipment weighed. The suitcase contains: gas masks, helmets, The Ransel (rucksack, rat trap, tent canvas, shovel, shaving kit, gamel, drinking bottle, a uniform…) and lots of other objects!
