GCSE Early Elizabethan England revision tool

GCSE Early Elizabethan England revision tool

This is a selection of 8 starters designed to be used for revision lessons on Early Elizabethan England. Designed to be used to encourage competition amongst students, a bit like the Head to Head round in the BBC quiz show 'Pointless', each slide includes visual clues to help students to remember key factors in the key events of Elizabeth's reign, such as the response of the English to the Religious Settlement, and the reasons for exploration. These could also be used as starters for lessons when first delivering these topics. This was written for the Edexcel spec, but could be used for other specifications.
