Card sort for the causes and consequences of the murder of  Thomas Becket
This card sort is great way to get students to sort through the causes and consequences of the murder of Thomas Becket.

Students are given eight cards with the causes and consequences mixed up and two headings labelled causes and consequences. This should take a core group no more than 5 minutes before feeding back and then sticking their cards into their books.

This active learning activity makes a great starter, mini plenary and plenary. It is in a word document so it can be easily edited to suit your own students. I would personally read a text book, worksheet or watch a video clip before attempting the activity.
