Hidden History, Fact or Fiction?

Hidden History, Fact or Fiction?

Presentation designed to as a useful activity as a starter or plenary activity in History. 100 statements are given with roughly 50% of them being accepted as factually correct. Statements are in chronological order. Students are challenged to use historical skills, logic and reasoning to decide if the statement is “fact” or “fiction”. If the correct response is chosen you will hear an appropriate noise and be taken directly to the next challenge. If the wrong response is chosen you will be taken to an appropriate slide and invited to try again. There is also the option of setting a number of challenges without going to the answer to allow all members of the class to participate. The whole presentation contains 103 slides and hyperlinks are embedded throughout.

Year 7 Homework Booklet Roman Britain

Year 7 Homework Booklet Roman Britain

This homework booklet has a mixture of creative, literacy, numeracy and research tasks. These also link into different historical skills which Year 7's are introduced to such as chronological understanding, source enquiries and comprehension as well as significance. I gave this to my classes on week 2 of the academic year and collected during the last week of the first half term.

Practice Questions Battleships

Practice Questions Battleships

Grids with practice questions on Roman baths (questions could be quickly changed to suit any topic/subject). Instructions are included for students so only the questions should need to be changed for a two player game. Basically, students try to guess where their partner has ships hidden on their grid, if they guess a space with a question on they need to answer the question and record on their sheet if they got it right. It took about 15- 20 minutes for the first pair to complete a grid.

Roman Medicine

Roman Medicine

This lesson was designed as an introduction to the history of medicine for mixed ability y7s. The lesson is straightforward. After the differentiated started, students need to go through the card sort and decide what they think is gross and what isn't. During this, they are also learning about different techniques. After this, there is a recap of the different techniques as a form of AfL. There is then a differentiated work booklet. The idea is that students begin at their targeted GCSE grade level and then move up two or three levels in the allotted time. There is no direct plenary. The video at the end can be used for this as questions can be asked about the Horrible History clip.
