It is over 175 years since the invention of the world’s first postage stamp – The Penny Black. This simple idea that we take for granted today revolutionised the way people communicate by opening up the postal system to ordinary people, who previously couldn’t afford to use it.
Pop It In The Post reveals how this little piece of paper changed the way people communicate forever. The learning resource includes:
• Lesson plans
• Teachers’ notes
• Activity ideas
• PowerPoint presentations for whiteboards.
Curriculum links: History, (Local Study and Continuity and change), Literacy, Maths, Geography, Citizenship, Art and Design
