KS3: ages 11-14Teacher's PackBookPoster

This history teaching pack explores the relationship between Britain’s Industrial Revolution and colonialism in the Caribbean, Ireland and India.

The pack is organised into four units: Britain’s Industrial Revolution which explores the wealth that Britain obtained by trade and colonialism in the 18th and 19th centuries; Britain’s connection with the Caribbean and West Africa; the Relationship between Ireland and India and the Industrial Revolution in Britain; the final unit draws a number of the main themes together and examines the Great Exhibition of 1851.

An extremely useful resource that covers a number of very complex and difficult areas very well. The use of a range of source material in particular is very effective.
