Challenge 2: My Toy Museum Label

This term we are investigating changes within living memory by looking at how the toys children play with have changed. In school, we have been looking at how technological toys, teddy bears, toy cars and Lego have all changed. We've been making informative museum labels to tell people what we've discovered. Choose one of the toys from your Toy Investigation and write a museum label.

Things to include:

•What it is.
•How old it is.
•What is looks like (so you can find it in a display).
•What it is made from.
•Interesting fact about it.
Here is an example:
