This video was created by my 13 year old nephew and I thought it was so good that I would upload it on the TES for every teacher and learner of History to watch and learn about the Spanish Armada from it!
It is quite funny and of really good quality, as well as being historically very accurate!
Two lessons covering the topic of the Spanish Armada:
L1: Causes of the Spanish Armada - introduces the Spanish Armada and students must consider the most important causes
L2: Why was the Spanish Armada defeated? - includes ranking causes in order of significance on a thermometer.
Challenge activities (in pink bubbles) have also been included in each lesson.
Used with a higher-ability Year 8 class, but can easily be adapted to fit other ages and abilities.
Some parts, i.e. information, have been taken from other resources, but most activities are my own.
Please rate my resources! Thank you and I hope your students enjoy these lessons as much as mine did :)
This PowerPoint game is highly engaging and interactive. Kids of all ages love it and it really encourages learners to use higher order thinking skills.
The questions created by the learners are weapons with which each team arms their spaceship... let's the space war begin...
This lesson was rated outstanding by ESTYN inspectors and it has a wide range of resources and activities to support you in teaching Solids, Liquids and Gases. The intro activity works best if photocopied several times and laminated with the images cut and placed in numbered envelopes for each group.
This is a really engaging series of lessons on Energy Resources and Energy Transfers that is set as a role play where learners have to solve a real Energy Problem. There is also a very engaging and interactive game on energy transfers in power stations which will surely liven up your lessons on Energy Resources.
The PPT has carefully selected colours to play tricks on your learners! You must keep the swf file in the same folder as the PPT, or the activity will not work when you get to that slide!
Give green + red filters to your learners to put in front of their eyes. Then, sit someone with green filters near someone with red filters, etc!
Make filters by buying 3D glasses and cutting them in half. Then, stick two green 'lenses' together to make green filter goggles, and do the same for the red goggles.
Have fun, you kids will love this activity and it is a definite winner during open days too
Goes from the dinosaurs through key periods of history to the present day. Use MS Word to adapt it.
I have added the Stone, Bronze, Iron and Middle Ages to the updated version. As well as the first public railway in 1825, England winning the World Cup in 1966 and the 2012 Olympics.
A full lesson on the invasion of the Spanish Armada in 1588, this lesson is for KS3 students and includes a group role play task for students and a worksheet to support the planning of a cause and consequence assessment on the failure of the Spanish Armada.
