This is a presentation on the explorer, Christopher Columbus, who discovered the 'New World.' Use it as part of a lesson or for an assembly. The presentation covers Christopher's childhood, his early sailing years, his voyage and his discovery.

iPad Card Sort: Native American Beliefs

iPad Card Sort: Native American Beliefs

This outstanding iPad card sort is designed to help students studying Native American beliefs. This activity is suitable to the full range of abilities as a starter, plenary or revision activity. It could also be used as a homework activity to help consolidate learning and should work alongside any main stream resource on the American West. When you download this resource you will also receive a hard copy of the card sort as well as a PowerPoint with the aims, objectives, instructions, task codes and the password you will need to activate the activity on https://www.thinking-kit.com/. The activity involves sorting fourteen statements by dragging and dropping them onto either land, circles, spirits or farming and mining . Once the initial activity is complete, students can then discuss and feedback their answers before saving them into a PDF version which can be saved, submitted for marking or printed off. In order to introduce some discussion and debate, we have deliberately included several statements that could easily be applied to several headings. Hopefully these should provide some extension for the more able students. We've also included a hard copy of the card sort in the form of a Microsoft Office Word document as a courtesy, just in case you do not have enough iPads on the day. The aims and objectives of this lesson are: Theme: The American West Know: What did Native Americans believe? Understand: How were these ideas linked to circles, land and the 'Spirit World'? Evaluate: Why would these beliefs come into conflict with European ideas? WILF: What Am I looking For? Identify and describe: What did Native Americans believe? Explain: How Native American beliefs were matched to their ideas on circles, the Spirit World and land? Analyse: Why would these beliefs come into conflict with European ideas?
