The English Civil War Wordsearch History Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

The English Civil War Wordsearch History Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'The English Civil War'. 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!

The civil wars throughout Britain: Cavaliers and Roundheads

The civil wars throughout Britain: Cavaliers and Roundheads

Who were the two sides in the English Civil War? How did they differ? What did they believe in? Students will be able to answer these questions in this lesson and decide which side of the fence they would be on today. These answers are backed up with some excellent video and audio footage. They will ultimately have to produce a propaganda leaflet encouraging people to join their campaign as a Royalist or Cavalier using persuasive literacy techniques and song lyrics. This is a fun lesson with a number of activities designed to get students involved, active and enjoying their learning.

The civil wars throughout Britain: Causes of the English Civil War

This lesson explores the problems Charles brought upon himself to cause the English Civil War. Students are given information which they have to analyse and decide how and why there were opposing views from Parliament and the King on how to run the country. The use of contemporary accounts and propaganda posters will challenge the more able as well. Students justify who in their opinion is to blame for the Civil War and demonstrate their learning at the end of the lesson using factor and function symbols.

The civil wars throughout Britain: Who was the real King Charles I?

The civil wars throughout Britain: Who was the real King Charles I?

This lesson aims to find out the personality of King Charles. Following in his father’s footsteps, his vanity and obsession with the Divine Right of Kings are major causes of concern for those in Parliament. Students learn about his fragility in his younger life to eventual arrogance as he becomes King and will link a number of reasons together as to why this was to lead to Civil War. Video footage and source work is used to gather the evidence and the students will have to think outside the box to understand his motives and actions at the end using pictures from Rory’s story cubes.
