Investigate this photograph using the four steps. Click Look, Ask, Conclude or Expand if you need some help from me.

Look. Describe what you can see. How many people are there? What are the children wearing?

Ask. Do you think these children were poor or well off? What do you think it was like to wear these clothes? Do you think they are related? How can you tell?

Conclude. Why do you think this photograph was taken? What does it tell you about being a child in Victorian times? How does this photograph differ from those taken today?

Expand: What more would you like to find out about being a child in Victorian times? How would you find out? What other sources could you use?
