“The Haussmann House” brings students to the heart of the 19th century and introduces them to the industrial development and the evolution of French society, the bourgeoisie, the appearance of the working class, and the traditional peasant class.

 Each student will build his own "Haussmann House", which is a facade. Then, the children can put all the facades side by side and /or back to back to form the famous Parisian "Boulevard Haussmann". This model could be constructed as a group work, in different classes or in groups of students so that each group or class builds a district of Paris.
