Explore differences and similarities between homes old and new and discover what life was like around this magnificent house through hands-on investigation of authentic objects and clue finding.
During this two hour workshop, pupils will:
- Find out what life was like inside homes that were built a long time ago and to compare this with homes today.
- Explore the key features of the outside of a home built in the past and to compare it with modern homes.
- Explore Temple Newsam House as the home of a wealthy family with servants and to use it as a primary source of evidence to find out about the family and their home and to compare life in a rich family with that of a poorer family.
