Christmas Through Time Activity Booklet: Bumper Pack.

Christmas Through Time Activity Booklet: Bumper Pack.

It's always nice to give your students something Christmassy to work towards as it gets closer. I've updated this resource due to it's popularity. This 10 page booklet can be printed in colour or black and white. Students can work through the different activities suggested in one go or once a week. I've used these resources with different ages but it would work best for lower secondary or primary school. The resources tell the Christmas story, look into traditions today and explore how Christmas was celebrated in the Tudor and Medieval period. The additional Powerpoint may also be used for other activites. Comments are appreciated. Images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for reuse".

Social Inequalities - Gender, Class, Ethnicity

Social Inequalities - Gender, Class, Ethnicity

A 442 slide presentation (that's right, four hundred and forty two) on social inequalities in relation to gender, class and ethnicity. The presentation covers a wealth of sociologists, key concepts and theories. The amount of time and effort I have put in to these is overwhelming (it is all created by myself), and all YOU have to do is download the presentation for a very reasonable fee. I assure you they are worth every penny.
