This great resource is designed to be used a starter or plenary to help students sort through the chronology of what happened during the Gunpowder Plot in 1605. It is designed to work alongside any main stream resource or video on this topic. I have designed a lesson around this resource using the PowerPoint to drive the main activities which would suit a primary school or lower ability group at secondary group. If you are looking for a more challenging resource, I have also uploaded work suitable for higher ability students.
When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a twelve slide PowerPoint presentations with starters, plenaries, historical sources, information slides and video clips to support the main activity. You will also be able to download a Microsoft word document with a copy of the key events.
I normally keep a copy of the card sort in 15 envelopes and get me students to quickly order them into the order in which they think it happened before feeding back to a class discussion. This takes about 3 minutes. However, you can also give it out as a sheet and ask them to cut out the cards and stick them into your book. This can take up to 15 minutes. If you are being observed it might be an idea to get your students to sort the cards at the beginning to help you evaluate what they know and then do it again at the end to help you demonstrate progress.
This is a tried and trusted resource which has never failed to ignite my learners interest in the topic. The aims and objectives of this lesson are:
Theme: The consequences of the Break with Rome
•Know: What happened during the Gunpowder Plot in 1605?
•Understand: Why would the Catholics want to kill the king and parliament?
•Evaluate: How far does the historical evidence support that Guy Fawkes was framed?
•Skills: Source Analysis, Cause, Consequence & Collaboration
WILF – What Am I Looking For?
