1 GRADE 7 TAKE HOME ASSESSMENT: Let s Create a VICTORIAN ENGLAND Scrapbook! SURNAME, NAME: CLASS: DUE DATE: For this Take-Home Assessment, you will prepare a scrapbook about Victorian England. This scrapbook will require your creativity, critical thinking and comprehension of our reader A Christmas Carol. Good luck & We hope you have fun! You can choose between two options for your scrapbook: Time travel, back to London in 1842! Imagine that somehow a time machine took you back to Victorian England during Christmas time. After you had some adventures, you came back and prepared a scrapbook of this incredible experience. How did you get there? Where did you find yourself? What was the most shocking thing for you? Why? What did you see while you were there? What did you hear / smell in on the dark and grim streets of London? Who did you see / meet? Where were they? What did you talk about? What did it feel like to be there? What did you want to do? Were you happy? Why? Why not? Try to be as descriptive as possible use sensory adjectives, similes and metaphors! What did you learn about family life, role of men & women, living conditions, food & health, jobs people had during the time of Victorian England? The diary of a homeless boy in Ebenezer Scrooge s neighbourhood. Imagine you are the child who sings a song and begs Scrooge for money at the beginning of A Christmas Carol. Create a diary for him as a scrapbook of your life in Victorian England. Who are you? Where do you live? Who do you live with? What kind of a life do you live every day? What do you see? What sounds do you hear? What can you smell in the grim streets of London? What do you eat? How do you feel about living in London? Are you happy with your life? Why? Did you have an interesting / happy Christmas Day? Why / Why not? Who did you see / meet? Try to be as descriptive as possible use sensory adjectives, similes and metaphors! What do you know about family life, role of men & women, living conditions, food & health, jobs people had during the time of Victorian England? eng-ta-t2-(Take-Home Assessment)

2 No matter which option you choose, your scrapbook MUST have the following sections: Information about family life (1 paragraph) Information about the role of men and women (1 paragraph) Information about living conditions (1 paragraph) Information about food and health (1 paragraph) Information about jobs (1 paragraph) At least 5 pictures with captions explaining each of the pictures. A reference to the book ( where can you find this information in A Christmas Carol?) IN CLASS PART 1 : My Research & Notes on Victorian England - 20 min. (5pts x3=15 pts) Choose 3 of these topics given and start doing your research in class. You will use these notes later on in your scrapbook. (You may get help from the QR code resource links at the end of the booklet or find your own resource links) The other 2 topics can be done at home and they are still needed. Note taking does not mean copying and pasting everything! Paraphrase and take notes of important sections. (4-5 sentences for each part) Family Life in Victorian England (size of families, role of the father / mother ) Living Conditions in Victorian Era ( for rich & poor ) Industrial Improvements in Victorian Time Resource(s) used eng-ta-t2-(Take-Home Assessment)

3 Pollution / Health problems in Victorian time _ Child Labor during Victorian England _ Resource(s) used : IN CLASS PART 2 AN IMPORTANT PERSON FROM THIS TIME 20 min. (25 pts) Write about an important person that lived during Victorian England. Who is he/she? Describe him / her. Why is he/she so important? For e.g. Charles D. / Queen V. / Florance Nightingale /.

4 Before handing in your scrapbook to your teacher, make sure you go through this checklist. I have searched and found informative resources and taken enough notes. I have used these notes in my scrapbook. I have created a cover page for my scrapbook. My project is related to my choice. I followed the guiding questions of my choice. I have written one full paragraph about each information topic in my project (family life, men and women, living conditions, food and health, jobs). I have included pictures (at least 5) and captions explaining each of the picture. I have given reference to the book at least once (where I found this information in A Christmas Carol) Some useful resources Important notes: You can find more examples of scrapbooks on Google. The deadline is important as usual. If you do not complete it on time, you will lose points for each day that it is turned in late. (1 day late = -10 points, 2 days late = -20 points, etc.) All writing must be in your own words. Copying and pasting from the internet, a book or a friend is not allowed and will not be accepted. Please remember that Academic honesty is a very important value of our school eng-ta-t2-(Take-Home Assessment)
