The Victorians Wordsearch Victorian Era Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

The Victorians Wordsearch Victorian Era Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'The Victorian Era'. 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!

Black History Month: The American West

Black History Month: The American West

This outstanding resource has been designed for Black History Month and focuses on the achievements of Black People in the American West. The resource can easily be adapted for display purposes but it is designed to be used as a collaborative market place activity. This beautifully illustrated resource is a must have for anyone teaching this topic. The tasks and activities have been written to appeal to the full spectrum of ability and have been set up around the market place activity where the key slides in the PP are printed off and either pinned on the classroom walls or set out on the tables so that students move around and fill in their information on the summary sheet. This is a very proactive lesson designed to get students up, moving around, sharing and working collaboratively. I have provided two different summary sheets to help provide weaker students with more structure when recording their research. The information in the market place activity looks at nine individuals from a cross section of society and the roles they played in the American West. These include mountain men, pioneers, businessmen, Native American Chiefs, lawmen, law makers, soldiers, preachers and cowboys. The aim is to provide students with an alternative positive perspective of the achievements of black people, which is often overlooked in traditional text books. The starters and plenaries are designed to help students to draw upon their prior knowledge and question whose story is being told. I have deliberately focused on the achievements of black men to help set up the plenary so that students can think about 'Herstory' and other perspectives and the purpose of history. The aims and objectives for these resources are: Theme: The American West Know: What is Black History month? Understand: Why is it important to highlight black history? Evaluate: What roles did Black people play in the settlement of the West? WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: Black History Month Explain: Why is it important to highlight black history in the curriculum? Analyse: What roles did Black people play in the settlement of the West?

WALKING THROUGH THE WALLED TOWN OF GALLE SRI LANKA - HISTORY - GEOGRAPHY -TRADE

WALKING THROUGH THE WALLED TOWN OF GALLE SRI LANKA - HISTORY - GEOGRAPHY -TRADE

This unit has a focus on the fortified trading port of Galle -Ceylon (present day Sri Lanka) It can stand alone as an interesting study of a walled town that has World Heritage status. It can provide a framework for three periods of European influence (Portuguese, Dutch, British) in the operation of trade from the Asian area and the markets of Europe. Beyond this framework this unit could be used to link with other areas of study - such as "The British in India"; "The Dutch in the East Indies" (present day Indonesia); "The plantations systems in Ceylon" : "The ancient kingdoms of Ceylon" ; "The endangered Asian elephants of Sri Lanka". Take your students through the defensive walls of Fort Galle. Discover via photographs the imprints of history and understand why this is a unique place. The attachments are provided to encourage debate and check learning. In Galle, history is about what has been but also about what remains evident.
