Developing chronological knowledge and understanding: Britain before the Romans

Developing chronological knowledge and understanding: Britain before the Romans

A set of linked resources and activities to help students improve their understanding of the sequencing of events. This set covers Britain before the Romans, c4500BC-43AD There is a specially designed power point presentation of 25 selected events. This is designed to convey a sense of the passage of time by having the transition between slides vary in length depending on how many years actually passed between events. Each slide has a date, event and appropriate illustration. (Each event slide is on show for five seconds and the whole presentation lasts for approximately five minutes). As a bonus there is also a ‘click through’ version of the slide show. The selection of events is not meant to be definitive for the study of that period (it’s a selection not a comprehensive timeline!) – this allows for an extra activity/challenge of students deciding what is missing/what could be left out. The same events are on a word document with a classifying task -to help students identify links within a period. Some of these events are also used for a set of sorting challenges (by focussing on the same set of events in different ways it will help boost students’ knowledge). The first involves sorting set of four different events into the correct order – available on power point and word document. The second is a set of printable ‘cards’ which can be used for sorting or matching tasks (such as the matching pairs game) – each event is on a separate ‘card’ from its date (organised in sets of 10). The third is a set of ‘domino cards’ where each card has an event and a date that links to another event -so making a single sequence of 10 events.

Hadrian's Wall Wordsearch Geography History Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Hadrian's Wall Wordsearch Geography History Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Hadrian's Wall'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
