Students will learn about Industrialization during the Victorian time period. The Industrialization and Child Labor in Victorian Britain Webquest uses a great website created by the BBC. The website allows students to explore child labor and life of children in the United Kingdom during the 1800s. Check out the website at:
The webquest contains 68 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about the following topics:
• Industrialization in the 1800s
• Child Labor
• Child Labor Laws
• Mines and factories in the 1800s
• Daily life in the 1800s
• Schools in the 1800s
• Irish Potato Famine
An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest takes most students one to two class periods to complete depending on the age of your students. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students. I highly suggest this webquest for students in grades 5-10. If you use this webquest at the high school level it will provide basic background information about Industrialization. I suggest checking out the website before making your decision to buy this webquest.
