What caused the Spanish Armada

What caused the Spanish Armada

This is a worksheet designed primarily for the new Edexcel GCSE, but it can be adapted for other exam boards. The worksheet has a range of activities attached to it and could be used as a whole lesson. It begins as a chronology activity, and then pupils are asked to colour code the sheet according to a range of factors. To develop their thinking skills for higher ability students, they can make links between different factors. The evidence they have explored is then used to construct an examination style question. There is also an answer sheet provided for non specialists.
