Bonfire Night / Guy Fawkes / Gun Powder Plot Activities
Do you want to teach your students about the 400 year old tradition of why we light bonfires and set off fireworks on 5th November?

This resource will teach your students about the our History of the Gun Powder plot and why 400 years later, every 5th November fireworks are set off and bonfires are lit!

The PowerPoint and worksheets are simple and fun to work through, require no preparation from you and give plenty of activities to fill the week leading up to Bonfire Night!

You can go through the PowerPoint first to give students background information, and then either work through these activities together or give students the choice on which ones to complete. You could even set some for homework and encourage some research and background reading on the topic too!
