Cold War Consequences Revision (Edexcel)

This is a cut and sort activity, with solution included, aimed at supporting students with the 8 mark consequences question. It was designed to support my students who were having difficulty differentiating between causes, events and consequences. At times they were identifying either events or causes and wrongly including them as consequences. At the same time as developing this key skill, the resource will help boost student knowledge of most of the key events needed for the GCSE. The students cut the cards out, sort them into groups of 3 and organise them in order of cause-event-consequence for each set. Once they have completed this they have to match the set to the appropriate 8 mark examination style question. To stretch them, they can then be asked to come up with a second consequence of their own (and even then match other question types to the topic as an extension task). The students can work individually or in pairs/groups.
