The Reign of James I 1603 - 1625

The Reign of James I 1603 - 1625

These outstanding resources look at key issues during the controversial Reign of James I. They begin bylooking at the problems that he faced during his reign and the impact of the break with Rome and include his relations with Parliament, The Divine Rights of Kings, Money, taxation and religious problems. The issue of the religious problems facing James I is explored via both the Gunpowder Plot and The Pilgrim Fathers. Whilst interconnected with both these problems is popular beliefs and superstitions which is explored through my resources on Witchcraft. The overarching theme to all these resources is their link to not just the consequences of the break with Rome but ultimately the causes of the English Civil War. Please click on each resource to find out more.

The Pilgrim Fathers

The Pilgrim Fathers

This outstanding lesson is designed to helped students understand who the Pilgrim Fathers were and why they left England to settle in America. It is a classic resource which has never failed to engage my students and has been carefully tweaked over the years to get the best possible outcomes. The resource can be used with a range of abilities and can easily be edited to customised to suit the needs of your students. For an extra £1 you can also purchase this resource with an accompanying PowerPoint or but it at a significantly discounted price as a bundled item. When you purchase this resource, you will receive a three page worksheet. The first page includes primary sources from the period as well as information on both the traditional and revisionist versions on who the Pilgrim Fathers were and why they left England to settle in the USA. The second page includes a range of different activities, including a starter and consolidation exercises to suit the full range of ability, whilst the third page includes two flow charts or decision trees that can be printed off, completed by students and stuck into their books to show the two different interpretations or versions of the history of the Pilgrim Fathers. I have also linked in a video that I have posted on You Tube on this topic which can be previewed with this resource. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Causes of the English Civil War? •Know: Who were the Pilgrim Fathers? •Understand: Why did they leave Europe to settle in America? •Evaluate: Why did the Pilgrim Fathers decide to settle around Cape Cod? •Skills: Source Analysis, Cause and Consequence WILF – What Am I Looking For? •Identify & describe: Who were the Pilgrim Fathers? •Explain: Why did they leave Europe to settle in America? •Analyse: Why did the Pilgrim Fathers decide to settle around Cape Cod?

Age of Exploration - Revision Cards

Age of Exploration - Revision Cards

These revision cards have designed to create a fun and interactive way for students to learn about the voyages of exploration and adventurers during the ***‘Age of Discovery’. *** They make an excellent fun starter, mini plenary or plenary to any lesson. They can also be used by students as revision flash cards. When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a two page Microsoft Word Document which includes an instruction card and 11 revision cards on key the key explorers during the ***‘Age of Exploration’. ***These include Prince Henry the Navigator, Bartolomeu Diaz, Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Ferdinand Magellan,Cortes, John Cabot, Francis Drake, Hugh Willoughby, Sir Walter Raleigh and Ivan Moskvitin. This resource is fully editable so it can be customised to suit your students. There are three main ways that you can use them. Game 1 involves getting students to read out the key words until the other guesses the topic correctly. Game 2 involves additional challenge and stretch by getting students to describe the topic without using any of the key words on the card. The third game, which adds an additional layer of fun or challenge involves playing a round of Pictionary or Charades. I normally give my students 3 minutes of each round to help activate the learning and warm up the class. You could also have a freestyle round where students decide which game they want to play linked to their learning style. If you are trying to engage some under achieving boys, add some competition and get them to keep score in the back of their books. I would recommend printing them off on card and getting your students to cut them out. Then put the cards into an envelope for class use. If you are a student then keep them in your pocket and use them as a flash card to help you learn the key facts, If there is a term that you do not understand then as your teacher or do some extra research. From a revision perspective, you can print off the cards and get your students to learn the key words for a test or for their exams. These are a win, win resource. The kids will love them and they will help to improve your results. If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.

James I (James VI) Bundle

James I (James VI) Bundle

This combines the Profile and Pocahontas Lesson. The witches lessons make use of the civil war but they can be adapted to note James I's fear and hatred of them. There are a few extras in there too!
