Life in 1903 in London

We can use this video to help our pupils understand how life was in the past in London, and exploit it so that they can practise using the simple past and the 'used to' form. We can firstly ask them to spot differences in the way people dressed then and what we wear now. Then we could ask them about the transport and the forms used then and what we use nowadays. We can ask them to construct sentences:
In the past people used to wear hats every day and now we don't wear them so often.
In the past the women used to wear long dresses and skirts and nowadays they wear jeans and trousers.
In the past the most common form of transport was horse and cart or walking, and nowadays we use cars.
This activity would be adequate for 5th and 6th year primary pupils but could also be used for older pupils who could expand more on the questions.

This blog is all about Great Britain and is intended for students wishing to improve their knowledge of Great Britain. I hope to include photos, videos, anecdotes, and news as well as exercises to help students improve in areas where they have problems. It is also intended to be useful for teachers of English, with links to sites with information about British culture as well as exercises which can be used in class.
