Several of his main engineering achievements are examined through photographs, drawings and other historical objects, including the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Thames Tunnel and the incredible influence he had on the railways, travel by ship and even the Crimean War. A simple timeline helps readers see the span of his achievements over time. In the Ways into History series, original illustrations and simple text bring the past alive, while questions and activities encourage historical research and build up confidence and enthusiasm for British history at Key stage 1. For children aged 5+. Teaching and literacy notes are included to help parents and teachers use the book in a classroom setting and for home learning.
