Gunpowder Plot. What if? Numeracy Tasks
What if the Gunpowder Plot had succeeded?
Here's a fun activity linking History with some numeracy tasks.
Pupils should be given a map of 1605 London (found on ppt) and work out the radius impact areas a successful explosion could have had.
They also have to work out a possible escape route for Guy Fawkes to an awaiting ship near Tower Bridge, calculate the distance he'd travel and the time he'd take.
There's also a question to work out if Fawkes would have made it beyond the blast zones in time.
Questions are based on the Numeracy Framework. You could differentiate by giving specific questions to different abilities.
