In this lesson students read background information before sequencing a 33 piece card sort to explain the terrible conditions enslaved Africans endured on the Guineamen slave ships. This then leads on to the main task in which students are given a card listing three conditions experienced on the ships. They then create a class oral history project which can be recorded and stitched together. This is always an extremely powerful lesson and one which needs to be taught sensitively and with purpose. I hope you enjoy teaching your students about this crucial aspect of world History as much as I do.

Mon Ordi et mon portable Studio 1 Module 3

Mon Ordi et mon portable Studio 1 Module 3

These cue cards are a speaking resource to support the study of Studio 1 Module 3 unit 1, Mon Ordi et Mon Portable. They combine technology activities with frequencies. To play clones, make 2 or 3 sets and distribute - students interact asking and answering questions until they find their clone. Page 1 is one set of 9, page 2 is a second set of 9, each one differing in one or two details so students need to interact as much as possible to find their clone- I have found it works best if they ask questions in random order. For a smaller class or group, just one set of page 1 cards can be used as a simple speaking activity asking and answering questions. great for developing confidence and speaking skills. Please dont forget to leave a comment below, thank you :)
