Hercules and Cerberus in the Underworld, 12th Labour

Hercules and Cerberus in the Underworld, 12th Labour

A simple and very visual and kinaesthetic worksheet for younger children learning about the 12th Labour of Hercules. I got them to watch the clip of this from the Abbey Home Medea Hercules dvd before doing this to make it even more visual and audio.

Medicine Through Time GCSE Revision

Medicine Through Time GCSE Revision

I have created a bundle of revision lessons from Prehistoric to Modern Medicine. They are each designed to be delivered in roughly an hour’s lesson. Although the content of each time period is included, as these are revision lessons the focus is on GCSE style questions such as factors, individuals and Source analysis. These lessons are suited for students of all abilities; some model and markscheme answers are used to analyse topics. I have also included a set of Medicine Revision Flashcards which look at individuals and evaluate their importance and contribution to Medicine The lessons are as follows: L1: Prehistoric and Egyptian Medicine L2: Greek and Roman Medicine L3: Islamic Medicine L4: Medieval Medicine L5: Renaissance Medicine L6: King’s Evil and Smallpox L7: Hospitals from Hell L8: Pasteur and Koch L9: Key individuals L10: Public Health L11: Women in Medicine L12: The Liberal Reforms L13: War and Medicine L14: The National Health Service
