Activity 6

Now it's time to think about what you have learnt.

Choose one thing that you have found out about, (Queen Victoria, children at work, Victorian schools) and find an interesting way of presenting the information. You could design a poster, make a fact file or even design and write your own book. Maybe you can think of an even better way to show what you have found out. It's up to you!

You can use the internet to help you find out even more. Remember to ask permission and to surf safely.


Activity 5

Look at the Victorian School activity sheets. Can you put each activity into the right section of the Victorian School Venn Diagram? The centre section is for things you would find in both Victorian and modern classrooms. Draw the Venn diagram if you can't print it.
