Victorian domestic A

loan box A containing domestic Victorian objects

This box contains typical household objects from the late 19th century, including flat iron, glove stretchers, butter pats, candle snuffer and sugar cutter.  They provide a tangible link to people's everyday lives, and can be used to compare/contrast how domestic life has changed over the last 150 years.  A good starting point is as 'mystery objects', getting children to explore objects and materials, and use their critical/historical thinking skills.
