How does a new town emerging 3 miles away from a sleepy little village change the way that village grows?

Students learn how, in the 1800’s, the growth of Middlesbrough affected the existing village of Linthorpe and explore the reasons why the local area has evolved to look like it does today.

Students also get the chance to create their own 3D village for display in the classroom.

This session aims to encourage students to want to find out more about their local area. It can be run at the Museum or in your school.

Learning outcomes:

As part of a local history study, in this session students develop the key concept of determining trends over time. They also acquire a deeper understanding of how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources, such as the (1881) census.

Main learning approaches:

  • Creative learning
  • Collaborative learning

Pre-booking is essential.
