Princess Anne Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson British Royal Family

Princess Anne Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson British Royal Family

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Princess Anne’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations & the Abyssinian Crisis

AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations & the Abyssinian Crisis

The aim of this lesson is to explore the reasons why in the face of unprovoked hostility and belligerence, the League of Nations did little to stop Italian aggression against Abyssinia and why Britain and France went out of their way to appease Mussolini. Students analyse the reasons why Mussolini invaded Abyssinia in the first place. But more importantly they evaluate the role of the League and its clear inability to act decisively, even before Britain and France undermined its very foundations. When students have built up a clear picture of the whole incident, they are then ready to tackle a ‘write and account’ question for homework. If you like this lesson, please visit my shop where I have created lessons for the first unit of the AQA course on Peacekeeping and the League as well as Conflict and Tension Revision Guides.
