The Day the World Got Smaller
‘The Day the World Got Smaller’ is a web based learning resource about the history of the Liverpool to Manchester railway; the first ever railway between two cities.
The website includes six artworks created in collaboration with primary school children. Each artwork includes suggested activities that can be completed in the classroom or at home. These include ideas for creating your own animation, photography, poetry and drawing inspired by railway heritage.
Children will learn about local railway heritage while learning some basic art and design skills.
