New History OCR A revision activities - International relations

New History OCR A revision activities - International relations

A lovely lesson (could easily be several) lessons for GCSE students to revise the international relations unit especially for OCR, but would work really well with AQA and Edexcel modern world syllabuses. The ppt explains the variety of tasks - Various slides should also be printed out as instructions for each table. Some of the tasks are also on the slides, but others are extra attachments such as the explain away game and the timeline cards. This is a good way to keep yr 11 engaged and proactive during those last few lessons.

Interwar Years Revision 3 pack - Anschluss, Appeasement, Poland

A pack of three revision sheets for Inter-War years topics: Anschluss Appeasement Invasion of Poland (Nazi-Soviet Pact) Each sheet has an overview and then some revision/exam style questions - including sources to analyse I made these for my SEN group as they like a clear focused revision task. Each one has taken up a lesson as we’ve read the info, discussed the topic, watched some relevant clips on youtube, answered the questions and checked them together. They would make good homework sheets or extensions as needed. I hope they help and good luck for the exams!
