Series of 5 lessons (could take a little longer) on the topic of the Industrial Revolution. Lessons 1 and 2 are a simple and very visual introduction to the I.Rev, using a clip from the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony. An optional homework is included in this lesson (included at the end of the resources), although it is all about how the North of England was revolutionised! It could be easily adapted though. Lesson 3 delves into the problems that were caused by workers flocking to the cities from the countryside, and gives focus to group work and a map from memory. Lesson 4 is an excellent murder mystery investigation - which was originally from TES resources and I have only adapted and souped it up a bit. Students love coming up with wild theories and enjoy being repulsed by the "Mystery source" (Water from the Broad st. pump - actually a jar of water with gravy granules in it, looks revolting). Lesson 5/5.5 is an assessment, with preparation and AFL for students.
