This resource pack introduces pupils to kitchens from the past. Pupils compare the layout and utensils from a Celtic kitchen, a Victorian kitchen and a modern-day kitchen. Cooking and washing are then looked at in more detail.

Pupils make simple comparisons between life in the past and life today. Pupils complete timelines using cookers, saucepans and kettles, both on screen and using worksheets. They identify differences in objects from other times and use these observations to sequence them on a timeline.

This lesson addresses 1.1, 2.3 and 3.1 from the PoS of the national curriculum in Wales.
