Hello, and welcome to my resource shop. I aim to create original resources for KS3, GCSE and AS/A2. I also aim to provide resources on the less obvious, mainstream topics and bring in elements of the LNF. I have 20 years experience as a History teacher, and 15 years as HoD. Have a look around and grab a bargain! 😄 Please leave an honest rating on any resources you may buy. 👍

Who was the greatest Victorian? Design a commemmorative plate!

(0)
A two lesson activity (including homework): Pupils are to consider (from a list of 18) which individual was the greatest Victorian. They have to consider how their contributions and achievements impacted Victorian life and if their achievements still impact us today. The list of 18 Victorians covers politicians, activists, reformers, nurses, novelists, inventors, scientists, explorers etc. I may have included names you don't agree with, and may have omitted names you think should have been included (if so let me know in the comments). The end task is a creative (organisation and communication) task, whereby pupils have to design a commemorative plate for their chosen Victorian. They also have to write a brief biography, indicating the short-term and long-term impacts of their achievements. You'll need paper plates! Enjoy!
