Really liked the activity, but a bit frustrating that the video is 'private'. Also, I couldn't get the 'mystery pictures' to reveal themselves on the Powerpoint and could not see what to do with them. Are there questions about the pictures?
Lesson based around 2 video links from BBC Class clips and using the Minds and Machines Text book to support.
Task 1 considers Britain's involvement in China and the Opium Wars.
Task 2 looks at Livingstone in Africa
Task 3 asks pupils to consider whether the Empire was a force for good or not.
Resources are for an active lesson where students circulate teaching each other whether the British empire was a force of evil or good. Students work in pairs; one half of the pair stays seated whilst the other half of the pair roatates teaching their car
Lesson focusing on the skill of making inferences from sources, cartoon interpretation modelled step by step on powerpoint with selection of cartoons for pupils to attempt on their own - can be adapted for group work and feedback to whole class.

Just finished this assembly with my Y5 class, it went so well and they loved it.
It involves an 'X factor' style show where each Greek god auditions to be king of the gods, whilst telling the audience a little bit about the Ancient Greeks.
It involves throwing confetti at the audience, a dance routine to music from Disney's Hercules, and a boy dressing up as Cheryl Cole....if you want.
Adapt and use as you want. Enjoy.
This lesson involves pupils working in groups to produce an election campaign for one of the claimants to the throne in 1066. (Before the Battle of Hastings lesson) The PowerPoint goes through the claimants to the throne in 1066 which allows students to work in groups for the election campaign task. <br />
The CV worksheet provides students with extra information to support with the group task. The election task work sheet gives clear instructions alongside extension tasks to enable students to complete high quality group work.
