African History before colonialism_(breaking the stereotypes) KS3 and 4

African History before colonialism_(breaking the stereotypes) KS3 and 4

This resource is part of a series of lessons I created, to support the history and music section of a themed curriculum unit on, ‘the Caribbean’ back in 2011. I decided to start from the much needed history of pre-colonial Africa for two reasons. The first being, to put music from different Caribbean countries into context and the second, was to try to dispel the racist myths that the media and society portrays about Africa, which has a detrimental effect on the psyche and self esteem of millions of people all over the world. This should be, in my opinion, a statutory part of the curriculum as African history underpins world history. This resource could be a stand alone unit to support black history month, history, geography or citizenship lessons.

The World News Crossword - February 25th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 25th, 2018

A simple PDF document that contains a crossword based on last week’s news, and three bonus crosswords (France 1, France 2, and Egypt). The solutions are included. So what happened last week? Russians doping at the Olympics, 6 Brazilian footballers being red-carded, and a protest at the Olympics by South Korean politicians. Suicide bombers in Aden, kidnappers in Nigeria, and bribery in Greece, maybe. 17 people killed when a rubbish pile in Maputo collapsed, a plea to ban palm oil to save forests, an Asian toad invasion in Madagascar, and a whole lot of people volunteer to clean up the beaches and rivers in Bali. And finally, a ceasefire in Syria (perhaps). Crosswords are excellent for prompting discussions about the news events. Why are these events happening? What would you do, if you could? What can we do? Crosswords are good for encouraging research, neat handwriting, and correct spelling.
