Worksheet: Why did Britain's population 'explode' 1750 -1900?

Worksheet: Why did Britain's population 'explode' 1750 -1900?

This lesson resource has been designed to help students studying the historical controversy surrounding why Britain's population increased from 1750 - 1900. It can be used with the full spectrum of ability, but the text level of the sources would better suit lower middle to upper ability students. However, if you like this resource, I have also produced a PowerPoint and a card sort, which provide additional differentiation. These can be purchased separately or as a package under the same title . When you purchase this resource you will be able to download an editable, two page Microsoft Word document which includes an introduction which sets the scene and five sources that look at the issue of why Britain's population increased. The first question gets students to summarise what they can learn from each source about why the population increased, whilst the follow up questions look deeper into the underlying causes and get students to compare and contrast them. The final question sets the scene for the next topic by getting students to draw up a list of the pros and cons of an expanding population. My card sort on this topic would make an excellent plenary for this lesson. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Why did Britain have an industrial revolution 1750 - 1900? Know: Why did Britain's population increased from 1750 - 1900? Understand: What factors caused this change? Evaluate: How far was the population increase due to a decline in the death rate? WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Why the population increased in size? Explain: What factors caused this change? Analyse: Make a judgement on how far the increase was due to an increase in the birth rate? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. You can also follow 'The History Academy' on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions. We aim to produce cheap and affordable resources for either the price of a good cup of coffee or a happy meal so that you can spend more time doing the things that you want. Kind Regards Roy
