Revision Cards / Dingbats: The Age of Exploration

Revision Cards / Dingbats: The Age of Exploration

These revision cards have designed to create a fun and interactive way for students to learn about the voyages of exploration and adventurers during the ***‘Age of Discovery’. *** They make an excellent fun starter, mini plenary or plenary to any lesson. They can also be used by students as revision flash cards. When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a two page Microsoft Word Document which includes an instruction card and 11 revision cards on key the key explorers during the ***‘Age of Exploration’. ***These include Prince Henry the Navigator, Bartolomeu Diaz, Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Ferdinand Magellan,Cortes, John Cabot, Francis Drake, Hugh Willoughby, Sir Walter Raleigh and Ivan Moskvitin. This resource is fully editable so it can be customised to suit your students. There are three main ways that you can use them. Game 1 involves getting students to read out the key words until the other guesses the topic correctly. Game 2 involves additional challenge and stretch by getting students to describe the topic without using any of the key words on the card. The third game, which adds an additional layer of fun or challenge involves playing a round of Pictionary or Charades. I normally give my students 3 minutes of each round to help activate the learning and warm up the class. You could also have a freestyle round where students decide which game they want to play linked to their learning style. If you are trying to engage some under achieving boys, add some competition and get them to keep score in the back of their books. I would recommend printing them off on card and getting your students to cut them out. Then put the cards into an envelope for class use. If you are a student then keep them in your pocket and use them as a flash card to help you learn the key facts, If there is a term that you do not understand then as your teacher or do some extra research. From a revision perspective, you can print off the cards and get your students to learn the key words for a test or for their exams. These are a win, win resource. The kids will love them and they will help to improve your results. If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. You can also follow ‘The History Academy’ on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions.
