The Victorian era was a time of massive change. During this time, the British Empire expanded into many parts of Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Canada. Queen Victoria ruled over so many countries it was called ‘the empire on which the sun never sets’.
The reign of Queen Victoria was also a time of great inventions and changes in medicine, science and engineering. The development of machinery and railways revolutionised society and the economy, and sparked the Industrial Revolution, which soon spread around the globe. These changes affected the life of everyone in Britain.
Victorian innovations and discoveries helped make our world what it is today – but at what cost?
The Victorian Project Plan is a cross curriculum downloadable resource, to help pupils explore the lives of the rich, poor and more with a series of 20 themed classroom activities for use with Key Stages 2 and 3.
