'Victorians on vacation' education kit

Bring the history of holidays, travel and leisure into the classroom by using our Victorians on vacation education kit. Drawn from our past exhibition of the same name, it will introduce your students to these themes through in-depth and engaging activities.

Aimed at years 3 to 10, these activities are aligned with VELS.

Images are included throughout the kit for you to use as a starting point for discussion and analysis. It also includes a list of useful related books and websites, and a colour booklet explaining the themes.

The kit is divided into four sections, each targeting a level of VELS and challenging students across the three integrated strands. Each section is prefaced with a VELS table illustrating the knowledge and skills developed through engaging with the exhibition and completing the relevant task.
