The Georgians Primary Resource
Get ready for an exciting journey back in time!
This history primary resource explores the Georgian era through a fun, colourful comic. Find out about this fascinating time in British history. When was the Georgian era? How many kings were there called George? What were the famous wars of the Georgian period?
With the help of Max the time-travelling mouse, pupils will learn all about the significant figures and key events of the Georgian era in this National Geographic Kids primary resource.
The teaching resource can be used in study group tasks for discussion about the Georgians and what life was like in Britain in the 18th and 19th century. It can be used as a printed handout for each pupil to read themselves, or for display on the interactive whiteboard, as part of a whole class reading exercise.
N.B. The following information for mapping the resource documents to the school curriculum is specifically tailored to the English National Curriculum and Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. We are currently working to bring specifically tailored curriculum resource links for our other territories; including South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
