Description:

In this unit of four lessons, from EDSITEment, students gain insight into the unusual, solitary world of Victorian childhood and compare and contrast it with their own world to understand why Beatrix Potter wrote simple stories and why she wrote about animals rather than people. Students can also learn the difference between an author and an illustrator and practice some of the same artistic techniques used by Potter to create masterpieces of their own.
