fantastic lesson. students really embraced the poster, market stall and peer teach activities. Didn't have time to write the letter at the end.
I did it twice with classes of about 30. first time I had them in groups instead of pairs, 2nd time in pairs.
An interactive PowerPoint that provides an overview of both the nature of trench warfare and of life in the trenches. For more detailed information on specific topics such as the use of gas you can view my other resources.
43 multiple choice questions. Great for an end of topic recap. It has space for pupils to record their target level (if you work that out - no point at the moment as curriculums are in the developmental process in schools), mark they achieved and level. There is also a statement for them to highlight to show how they have progressed towards their target. Pupils can either peer mark and self mark.
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.
Goes from the dinosaurs through key periods of history to the present day. Use MS Word to adapt it.
