Victorian Bundle

Victorian Bundle

This is my Victorian bundle. It is an interesting collection of different resources. In some ways, Victorians were similar to us, in other ways, they held very different opinions to modern Britons. These presentations are a great way to get the students talking in the classroom. They can discuss the dresses and toys and guess what the different household objects were used for.
