Asssessment task: The Mongol Expansion

Asssessment task: The Mongol Expansion

There are 3 parts to this task: 1. Create a model of a Mongol weapon or armour or piece of clothing, 2. Write a brief information report on the item that you have selected, 3. Include an annotated bibliography of at least 4 sources of information for your task. This has been a very popular task over many years and is guaranteed to maintain student engagement. I suggest that you advise school staff of the day that the task is due so that they are aware that models of knives, swords, shields etc. will be coming directly to you at the start of the day. This will avoid misunderstandings. Some of these models have been truly outstanding replicas! This assessment task meets the requirements of the NSW History K-10 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum and BOSTES assessment guidelines. Stage 4 Depth Study 6: The Mongol Expansion This is a great task to promote History!

Deconstructing a visual image - Mongol cavalryman

Deconstructing a visual image - Mongol cavalryman

This activity provides students with a primary visual image - a painting of a Mongol cavalryman, and deconstructs the components of the image in order to identify what it was about Mongol mounted warriors that made them particularly effective. Students then use the image and the background work they have completed in class to write a brief speech using the scaffolding provided. The outcome being taught is: HT4-10 selects and uses appropriate oral, written, visual and digital forms to communicate about the past. This activity is designed for students of the NSW History K-10 Syllabus. Stage 4 Depth Study 6: The Mongol Expansion

3 Primary sources: The Mongol Expansion

3 Primary sources: The Mongol Expansion

This resource includes 3 separate primary sources from eyewitnesses to events in the topic The Mongol Expansion and activities based on the source including who wrote the source, what we know about the writer, how their presence at the historical incidents impacts their writing, whether the information is reliable and the purpose of the writing. The 3 sources are: + Nobleman Dmitri survives the Mongol attack on Kiev, 1240 CE + Prince Yuri describes the Mongol conquest of Vladimir, 1238 CE + Wassaf describes the Mongol capture of Baghdad, 1258 CE Each source and analysis questions are on a single page. This task is designed for NSW students of the History K-10 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum Stage 4 Depth Study 6a: The Mongol Expansion The outcome being developed is: NSW HT5-5 identifies and evaluates the usefulness of sources in the historical inquiry process. The sources are colourful and descriptive and I recommend reading it aloud to the class and creating a visual picture of what the eyewitnesses see, hear and sense.

Class win or fail revision game -template suitable for everything!  (This one is on Medieval Church)

Class win or fail revision game -template suitable for everything! (This one is on Medieval Church)

Hi This is a creative and engaging game. There are 15 timed questions - they are linked to the main slide. The purpose - if the class get 12 or more correct, then win the reward. If they get less than 12, they get the punishment! Be careful - each question has a countdown timer. This is adaptable to any subject, for any age by simply over-typing the questions. This is the easiest and most engaging way to have a revision quiz! NOTE: The original file - ie the template - was created by my wife - also an author on TES under the name 'boosteration'. It is a 'TES PICKS' - please see link below https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-class-win-or-fail-revision-game-suitable-for-everything-11062844
