Virtual Classroom: Understanding transatlantic slavery
National Museums Liverpool’s brand new virtual classroom workshops are now available to book online!
Created for schools, the interactive curriculum-linked sessions – led by museum experts – will bring learning to life for pupils by engaging them in activities based on real artefacts. Each virtual classroom is supported by resources and activities that teachers can use before and after their live workshop.
Transatlantic slavery was responsible for the forced migration of more than 12 million people from Africa to the Americas over hundreds of years, well into the 19th century.
The ‘Understanding transatlantic slavery’ virtual classroom introduces students to Liverpool’s involvement in the trade, explains fundamental aspects of transatlantic slavery, and explores its impact on the lives of those involved.
