Card Sort: What were the consequences of the Peasants' Revolt?
This outstanding resource has been designed by experienced teachers to help students studying the Peasant's Revolt in 1381. It can be used with the full spectrum of ability as a starter, plenary, revision or assessment activity. If you are looking for a resource to provide additional stretch and challenge for your more able students, then why not check out my diamond 9 activity on this topic?

When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a fully editable Microsoft Word document which can be differentiated further if you wish. The Word document includes aims, instructions, two heading cards labelled 'short' and 'long' term consequences as well as twelve statements / consequences. Once students have cut out the cards and correctly matched the statements with either the 'short' or 'long' term headings, they can extend their understanding further by sorting them into their order of importance before sticking them into their books. This can be followed by making students to write an extended answer using the cards as a guide on the consequences of the Peasants Revolt.

At each stage students should be feeding back to their group or the class and explaining their choices. The discussion and explanation around the choices that they have made are critical in helping them develop their understanding of the topic.

The aims and objectives for this lesson are:

Theme: Medieval Society
Know: What happened after the Peasants' Revolt?
Understand: Which changes were 'long' or 'short' term consequences?
Evaluate: which changes were the most important?

WILF: What Am I Looking For?
