Toys of the past – classroom ideas

Some suggestions:

– Put photos in gallery into chronological order

Work with pupils to develop a version of ‘Toy Story’:

– Toys come alive when kids go home: maybe old toys meet modern day toys.

– Develop characters for each toy, especially the old toys; why are they like that?

– Develop stories / adventures with toys

– Pupils keep diaries / journals for toys at home


Digital suggestions:

– make storyboards from the archive photos

– record audio excerpts for toys voices

– develop very simple stop frame animation, with toys moving around the room
