Now you can turn your English or History classroom into a simulated 19th century London Workhouse. Use as a stand-alone lesson or as an introduction to Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol. It can also be used to teach about Victorian England's Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834. Students will be engaged with a hands-on learning activity to understand a topic that is challenging. I do this with seniors and they LOVE it!
