March 27, 2011 8:33 AM   Subscribe

Show Me is a site collecting games and resources for children from UK museums.

Online games include: what it is like to be a bat; the Fire of London; Darwin's Fooststeps; Joust; Nit Fit; decorating a Greek pot; MP for a week; Egyptian mummies; Victorian house; Pest Detective; Treasure Hunt; dressing a Victorian; Victorian millionaire; portraits; Roman coins (needs sound); Thingdom and Roman baths.

Other resources linked to, or articles on the site itself, include: exploring an Anglo-Saxon village; archaeology at a school in Essex; video about the history of writing; smells at Jorvik; making your own picture of a mythical creature (Word file); child life in Victorian Wales; legend about a Viking stone; and resources about the Romans.

There are also natural history jokes and emails from children.

There is a lot more on the site, though there are some broken links (all the ones above are working at the moment).

MP for a Week is surprisingly deep and it's taking a lot of my time....
