I'm a Historian! Ice Mummies Investigation (What is history? (KS3))

This lesson is set up as a pupil led investigation, pupils explore the ‘cave’ to find as much evidence as possible before they run out of time. They then have to use they evidence they have been able to collect to work out what has happened to the Mayan ice mummmy - this lesson is part of a series of lessons that build upon use of sources, interpretations and finally a baseline assessment. These can be found separately or as part of a bundle in my tes shop.
