The British Museum

Let's visit the museum!

At the British Museum, we are going to make one of our last stops in our visit to this superb city of London. At this museum, we can find, for example, The Rosetta Stone, which is one of the most important objects in the British Museum as it holds the key to understanding Egyptian hieroglyphs - a script made up of small pictures that was used originally in ancient Egypt for religious texts.

At the end of the session, you will have:

  • shared your article of opinion through different means,
  • visited the British Museum in London and revised "Question Words" in English,
  • had fun singing one of the most famous songs by the band "Queen"

For example, in Room 18, you can find the Parthenon statuary from the east pediment and Metopes from the south wall, 447-438 B.C

Let's take a look at what we can find in this amazing room: Room 18 - Parthenon

Enjoy the visit!

When we visit a museum, we usually ask a lot of questions or the guide can ask us some questions about what we are visiting. It is now a good idea to revise how to  use Question words when making questions. Question words in English.

Remember to include this place at your Google Site challenge.

Before leave this visit, take a look at a virtual walking tour at the British Museum:
