This year we studied the Victorians and to celebrate the Great Exhibition of 1850 we created our own version of Crystal Palace. The Great Exhibition celebrated culture, art and industry from around the world. We made Crystal Palace out of wire, painted Persian rugs, drew innovative machinery of the time such as sewing machines and lamps and created clay plates celebrating lavish food of the era.
