The Tudors Table Names

The Tudors Table Names

This is a set of 6 Tudor table names. Henry VIII William Shakespeare Elizabeth I Catherine of Aragon Francis Drake Sir Waler Raleigh I have uploaded these in PDF format as it most likely many downloaders will not have the correct installed to edit these in Microsoft Word. I made these to stick to each side of my 'SAMLA' table tidies I bought from IKEA, there a perfect fit. You can, of course, use them how you see fit. The smaller table name which comes in the pack I used for a table points display. This resource took a little while to both create and upload. Could I please ask you to spend a few seconds to review this item; it would be greatly appreciated. :) Enjoy

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

I lived and I worked in Qatar for a year. I know that while you need to teach about Qatar History, the books you are given are not easy to use and certainly won't last you a whole year and so I took the books I was given and I extended the tasks to produce a more interesting and more supportive learning environment, ideal for both the teachers and their students to get a lot more out of this topic.

Slavery: The Middle Passage Experience.

Slavery: The Middle Passage Experience.

To link with my previous lesson ('An introduction to Slavery), this lesson starts with an autonomously moving spotlight over a picture (of raw cotton) to hook pupils into the lesson and link to one of the causes of slavery. Pupils begin the lesson through listening to a description of the middle passage to help introduce the lessons theme. Pupils then write an inquiry question they would like answered by the end of the lesson. Main Task: Depending on your class the main task for this lesson could take many forms, some suggestions are: Pupils could work in teams and study evidence (12 pieces of evidence included) around the room to create a fact file on the experience of the middle passage on A1 paper (Prize for best one). Or pupils could work independently recording what they have learnt from the evidence in their books. A video clip from the show 'Roots' can then be shown (embedded) to help consolidate the tasks learning. Pupils will then have the knowledge they will need to answer their enquiry question and an exam style question at the end of the lesson which the teacher can then use to assess progress. Higher and Middle / lower ability version of sources included, with a peep sheet to prompt less able and a challenge sheet for more able. + Lesson Plan Included - Many Thanks.

Introduction to Native Americans.

Introduction to Native Americans.

This is an introductory lesson to help introduce Native Americans. Pupils watch 'Hook' video clip to guess what the lesson is about. Learning Intention and differentiated outcomes (SMSC). Pupils then watch a short video to introduce them to the daily lives of a Native American tribe. The majority of the lesson is based around the main task of 'Literacy Relay'. This is where pupils compete in teams to answer a series of questions based upon an information booklet. Pupils are then asked to use the information learnt from the main task to create a role-play or a series of Freeze-frames about a day in the life of a Native American. This lesson could easily be completed without the need of an exercise book.
