Stone Age - Quick True or False Quiz

Stone Age - Quick True or False Quiz

Using Red/Green paddles or cards, this true or false quiz was designed for use after introducing students to Mesolithic and Neolithic Stone Age people. There are some fun questions and weird facts about the period to lighten the topic a little. This quiz should only take about 5-8 minutes but it can be a good starter at the beginning of the lesson or it could be used to sum up the topic before moving on to The Bronze Age. Horrible Histories Savage Stone Age book is where the information in this quiz was compiled from.

How successful was the Roman army?

How successful was the Roman army?

In this lesson students challenge an interpretation made by the History Channel. The lesson is set-up by students watching a minute long introduction to a documentary. They then spend the lesson trying to test the interpretation presented. The end result is that students write a letter to the History Channel advising whether their statement was right or wrong. I taught this lesson to some able Y6 students but it work equally well for Y7 and Y8 if desired. Example student work attached.

How did the environment make them ill?

How did the environment make them ill?

This covers two lessons and has a progress check that connects them. At present I have had to scan in the art work in two halves, but I hope eventually to be able to have it completed whole, so creating a clearer image for use. (It's my artwork!) The idea here is to have the pupils understand what had changed between the Romans and the Middle ages and why. They should also know that this was not universal across the country or the time period as some pupils seem to think.
