How successful was the Roman army?

How successful was the Roman army?

In this lesson students challenge an interpretation made by the History Channel. The lesson is set-up by students watching a minute long introduction to a documentary. They then spend the lesson trying to test the interpretation presented. The end result is that students write a letter to the History Channel advising whether their statement was right or wrong. I taught this lesson to some able Y6 students but it work equally well for Y7 and Y8 if desired. Example student work attached. All images acquired from a search engine filtered to "labelled for re-use" Comments are appreciated.

How did the environment make them ill?

How did the environment make them ill?

This covers two lessons and has a progress check that connects them. At present I have had to scan in the art work in two halves, but I hope eventually to be able to have it completed whole, so creating a clearer image for use. (It's my artwork!) The idea here is to have the pupils understand what had changed between the Romans and the Middle ages and why. They should also know that this was not universal across the country or the time period as some pupils seem to think.

Was Galen the greatest doctor of all time?

Was Galen the greatest doctor of all time?

This takes you through the works of Galen in a concise manner. It includes some reference to physiology and biology which your PE GCSE students should be scratching their heads over! It is important to remember that with edexcel they do not need to know much in-depth work on him.

What were the Four Humours?

What were the Four Humours?

I have pulled together the essential points of this area that pupils need to understand into one PPT. This is an integral part of the history of medicine, although the study of Hippocrates and Galen are no longer mentioned in some of the specs, pupils still need to know who they were and what they did. The artwork is from the John Murray Textbook.
