How Would Life Be Different if Henry VIII Had the Internet?

When presented with the challenge of discovering all they could about Henry VIII, the children had next to no knowledge of what lie ahead of them. They soon became engrossed with the stories of his 6 wives, greedy ways and how he treated the people around him all while being obsessed with attempting to have a son. Although the class was outraged when they researched what 'executed' meant, they thoroughly enjoyed practicing their drama skills when they acted out some beheading scenes! Borrow boxes from Kettering Museum allowed us to explore items and wonder what life had really been like in Tudor times.
