The First Emperor
Go on a journey through the exhibition The First Emperor: China’s entombed warriors. Look, discover and have fun
Our children’s trails are designed to engage young children aged 6-12 with selected objects and images in the Gallery and our exhibitions. They combine looking and interpreting, drawing and writing activities to enable children to explore key themes and ideas while in front of the artworks. Extension ideas for activities at home and in the classroom are also included to extend children’s experience beyond the Gallery and to encourage and develop a love of art. Available online or as free printed booklets at the Gallery.
More fun, with paper cut-outs
Download the paper dolls sheet (right) and print it out. Colour in your warrior, horse and armour in bright colours. Draw a face on the warrior – make him as scary as you like. Cut out the warrior and horse and fold to make them stand up. Cut out the different suits of armour. Place the armour onto the warrior and change them to make him into different types.
