Developing chronological knowledge and understanding: Changes in Industry etc c1700-c1900

Developing chronological knowledge and understanding: Changes in Industry etc c1700-c1900

A set of linked resources and activities to help students improve their understanding of the sequencing of events. Due to the number of events some of these resources have been sub divided into three time periods (1694-1803; 1803 to 1851; 1851 to 1901). There are three specially designed power point presentations of selected events. These are 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 each whole presentation lasts for approximately five minutes). As a bonus there is also a ‘click through’ version of each slide show. (there is also a 'mega' presentation that covers the whole period). 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 would allow for an extra activity/challenge of students deciding what is missing/what could be left out. The same events are on three word documents with a classifying task -to help students identify links within a period. (and one long document with them all) 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 five 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.
