Family Friday – Local Heroes, Distant Voices Activities

harold abraham medals

As for every exhibition we stage at Kirkby Gallery, we produced an Education Pack for schools and families to use to bring the exhibition to life.

The Local Heroes, Distant Voices exhibition covered more than just the First and Second World Wars. It was looking at all of the different conflicts British soldiers have been involved with over the last century. We made a quiz to go with the huge timeline we had on display, and we also had creative activities too.

Here is the quiz sheet. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a printer, you can jot the quiz questions down on a piece of paper. Click here to see the timeline and figure out the answers!

If you want to have a go of designing your own medals, just draw around a mug or small plate to get a nice neat circle – or maybe your medal won’t be a circle? After all, it’s up to you what it looks like!
