This great little resource is designed by experienced teachers to help students studying the causes and consequences of England's war with Spain, 1585 - 1604. It can be used as a starter, plenary or revision activity and has used successfully in the classroom for many years.
When you purchase this resource you will receive a Microsoft Office Word document, which can be customised further if you wish. Once students have cut out the cards, they sort them to decide which ones are causes and consequences of England's war with Spain from 1585 - 1604. Once complete they can extend their learning by prioritise the cards or by creating a key to show causes and consequences were linked to money, power and religion.
The aims and objectives are:
Theme: What were the long term consequences of the Break with Rome?
Know: What were the causes and consequences of Elizabeth's war with Spain?
Understand: Which of these causes and consequences were linked to money, religion and power (politics)?
Evaluate: Which causes and consequences had the greatest impact?
WILF - What Am I Looking For?
Identify and describe: What were the causes and consequences of war with Spain 1485 - 1604?
Explain: Which causes and consequences were linked to money, religion and power (politics)?
Analyse: Begin to make a judgement on the long term consequences of the break with Rome and the making of the UK and USA?
This resource should appeal to a range of abilities and learning styles. It shouldn't take more than 10 to 12 minutes for a middle ability class to cut out the cards and sort them.
