This unit was brilliantly put together. My 7th graders had a wonderful time learning about the Victorian Era. To top everything off, we held our party at a local Victorian Bed and Breakfast. Each student dressed up from this era, and we played parlor games, sang holiday songs, and toured the historic site.Thank you Patricia!

I would suggest that educators wishing to explore this era further consider reading, "What Jane Austin Ate and What Charles Dickens Knew" by Daniel Pool. The customs detailed enrich and explain details from the time and help one understand the writing more clearly.
