Queen Victoria Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson History Monarchs

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Queen Victoria'. 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!

Two full lessons covering the content for the new specification Mormons section of American West. Two lessons, information sheets, differentiation and homework included. The youtube video used in the lesson describes the journey that the Mormons take to Salt Lake Valley. I do not own the video and have therefore not included it in the lesson, there are multiple videos on youtube that can fulfil this part of the lesson.
