A lesson that looks at one of the great victorian inventors, Rowland Hill, who invented the Penny Black stamp which transformed Britain and its relationship overseas. Students will assess the impacts of the invention through card sorts, categorising and prioritising tasks before they decide what the greatest impacts of the invention were. They follow this up with writing a post card to Queen Victoria to sell her Rowland Hill's invention. There are literacy support materials and differentiated activities suited to all abilities. As always there are clear instructions and high-quality resources.
