This is the first lesson in a series which covers features of the Industrial Revolution c1750-c.1900. In this lesson, the students use one source, George Cruishank’s ‘British Beehive’ in order to identify features of British society at the time. Students begin with questioning what they believe the ‘Industrial Revolution’ was. They are then given a copy of the illustration to discuss and analyse. After looking at this, they are prompted to complete a choice of activities such as producing their own ‘British Beehive’ or answering a set of increasingly hard questions about the source.
A high resolution copy of the source has been included in two different formats and worksheets for the students to produce their own beehive have also been included. You should not need anything else (unless you want) to teach this lesson.
Throughout this unit, there will be opportunities for students to practice important GCSE skills needed for all exam boards.
I WILL BE PUTTING THIS LESSON AND THE OTHERS INTO A FULL UNIT BUNDLE WHEN I HAVE COMPLETED THEM.
