Victorian Inventions  Worksheet

Victorian Inventions Worksheet

Key Stage Two - Years 5 / 6 This is a worksheet with two activities: firstly, pupils will discuss and link Victorian inventors with their inventions; secondly, there are four questions to discuss and answer. The questions focus on the significance and impact of several inventions. The worksheet will work best when it follows on from discussion and looking at artifacts or photographs, where pupils will have thought about the relative merits of the inventions and asked whether they are relevant today.
