Inspirational People - Presentation and activities

Inspirational People - Presentation and activities

Work for a few lessons on Inspirational People, both historical and contemporary and male and female. Ideal for RS and/or PHSE work. Suitable for Years 5-10 but all files are editable and can be adapted to suit differing needs and abilities. Includes: -Detailed powerpoint on 10 people who have stood for something in which they believed strongly. Could be used as whole class discussion or printed off as slides for groups to feedback main points, possibly as part of a research lesson gathering extra facts. -Overview - A3 sheet showing the photographs of all 10 people. Children fill in some biographical information and try to summarise the main points of for what they stood and the hardships they faced. This is probably more suited to an older or higher ability group. -Key Themes - A4 sheet with pictures and a list of key themes. Children match the key themes to the different characters, possibly as part of a group lesson where groups are feeding back research findings. -Balloon debate cards. A fun activity where groups of children have to persuade the rest of the class why their character deserves a place in a rapidly sinking balloon, rather than being thrown over the side. The cards can be cut out, they have the photograph of the character on one side and space for notes on the back. A good introduction to debating and persuasive speaking.
