A full lesson on the invasion of the Spanish Armada in 1588, this lesson is for KS3 students and includes a group role play task for students and a worksheet to support the planning of a cause and consequence assessment on the failure of the Spanish Armada.
The aim of this lesson is for the students to understand the causes and prioritise the reasons for the failure of the Spanish Armada.
As the students are posed with the question, ‘why did the Spanish eat rope?’, they make up an explosive cocktail to understand the main causes of the invasion.
As the story unravels as to the failures of the Spanish invasion fleet, students have to analyse and prioritise which were the main reasons for English success, against Spanish superiority in numbers and firepower.
The plenary requires students to evaluate the Blob bridge and explain which blob represents the best fit in this story, from an English sailor, the Spanish public right up to Queen Elizabeth and King Philip.
The lesson is differentiated and includes video evidence as well as an interactive diagram plotting the route of the Armada.
The lesson is enquiry based with a key question using a lightbulb posed at the start of the lesson and revisited to show the progress of learning.
The resource includes suggested teaching strategies, retrieval practice, differentiated materials and comes in Powerpoint format if there is a wish to adapt and change.
