This is a lesson and resources to support the teaching of Edexcel's GCSE 9-1 unit: Early Elizabethan England, 1558-1588. This specific lesson introduces the students to Unit 2.1 - Plots & Revolts at home. It includes activities that will give students an understanding of the Revolt of the Northern Earls, Ridolfi, Throckmorton & the Babington plots. There is reference to some in-class reading on the presentation - I use the Pearson book, but you could use your own version that your school stocks and simply change the page numbers referenced. Includes a starter card sort activity as well as three main activities and a review! Please let me know if this is useful to you as I have planned the whole of the Elizabeth unit and will upload more if so!
