Pirates Wordsearch History Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Pirates Wordsearch History Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Pirates'. 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!

Rich and Poor Victorian  Children

Rich and Poor Victorian Children

These activities were used with a Y4/5 class during their topic on Victorians. The idea is that the children read accounts from children living during the Victorian period and they compare their experiences to work out if they were from a Rich or Poor background. We used this as a stepping stone towards the children writing a diary from the point of view of either a rich or poor child in the Victorian times. Downloads include: - presentation (pictures gathered from Google images) - Statements from poor or rich children - A sheet for recording main similarities and differences - A Victorian Dictionary - outline key words linked to poor or rich families in Victorian times
