Card Sort: Causes & Consequences of the Glorious Revolution, 1688.
This great little resource is designed to get students to sort through a series of cards to help them decide what the causes and consequences in one of the most important turning points in both British and world history.

The aims and objectives are:

Theme: Making of the UK
Know: What were the causes and consequences of the Glorious Revolution?
Understand: Why did James II become increasingly unpopular?
Evaluate: How significant was the Glorious Revolution in 1688?

WILF - What Am I Looking For?
Identify and describe: What were the causes and consequences of the Glorious Revolution?
Explain: Why did James I become increasingly unpopular and what impact did the revolution have on Catholics living in Britain?
Analyse: Begin to make a judgement on the significance of the Glorious Revolution?

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.
