Victoria and Albert Museum

The “The Things To Do” section of the Victoria and Albert Museum in Great Britain has a ton of online activities, and many are accessible to English Language Learners.

I’ve placed direct links to several of the activities on the appropriate pages of my website.

I particularly like their Design A Coat of Arms, which fits in well with the World History class I’m teaching this year.  Students create the coat of arms, then email the url to be posted on a blog or online journal.  Students can then describe it.

Of course, this online activity, like many that I post about, can easily be done in the classroom with construction paper and colored pens, too.  As I’ve mentioned before, though, using the computer can provide a nice change-of-pace, as well as offer an opportunity for the development of some tech skills.

  1. Great find! I visited this museum several years ago and they had many of these activities set up on computer stations as you went through the museum. It is nice to discover that they are now online.
