Old and New Puzzle

If you lived in Mary, Queen of Scots' time, your life would be very different to the way it is today.

There was no electricity for lights, cooking or any of the gadgets we have today - this meant that people had to cook on an open fire, and use candles or lamps for light. It also meant that there were no TV, CDs or computer games - for entertainment, people used to go to the theatre, read books and play musical instruments or sing.

Have a go at our 'Old and New' puzzle to learn more about how life has changed since the 16th century.
