Look at the photograph of the mining memorial. On 4 July 1838 26 children were drowned when the Huskar Pit (mine) in South Yorkshire, England, flooded. Ask students to read the list of names and write them down in order of their age - oldest to youngest. Then look at the different laws that were passed during the reign of Queen Victoria and how these affected the lives of Victorian children. Pupils could summarize their thoughts/findings in a short piece of writing.

Useful resources that could supplement a lesson plan that already had objectives, alternate activities, and instructional methods.
