Join our virtual history classes on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at 3pm GMT to learn about key aspects of the Georgian period, when Benjamin Franklin was living in London. Together we will uncover the past and develop historical skills!

In this class, we’ll find out how the Georgians kept themselves amused – from visits to the theatre and pleasure gardens to sports and other games! Then we’ll learn how to make our own simple cup and ball game, a favourite amongst children during the Georgian era.

Activity materials: paper/Styrofoam cup, paper straw, string, tin foil, tape

Most Suitable for KS2 and KS3 (US Grades 2-8) but all ages welcome!
