Lindow Man: Reconstructing the past through human remains

This Powerpoint presentation supports the teaching of the NSW Ancient History syllabus Preliminary course Part I - Investigating the Past: History, Archaeology & Science It can also be used as a part of the Case Study: Bodies of Evidence The focus of this presentation is on Lindow Man - discovery, excavation, reconstruction, preservation, and using his remains to inform us about life in Celtic/Roman Britain. The presentation assists students to make decisions about the appropriateness of displaying human remains and whether archaeological remains should be displayed where they are found (to benefit local tourism) or sent to major centres where there are currently more tourists.

Writing your Own Mayan Codices

Writing your Own Mayan Codices

Great resource when learning about the Mayans. After a look at how Mayans communicated and how their number and writing system works, your class could try out this interesting activity, creating their own codices. They could write their name and a few sentences for a friend to decode.

Native American Bundle

Native American Bundle

Get all my Native American resources, highly recommended by TES and others for one great price! Includes notes, presentations, projects, activities, assignments, and an Aztec primary source analysis. Many of these are things I used when teaching U.S History, but I have taken the time to perfect them in a way that excites me as a teacher and I feel will do the same for you and your students. It is not designed to be a comprehensive information unit about Native groups as that would be impossible since there were hundreds just in the U.S. It is designed as an introduction to five very different groups and as a way to help students appreciate the past and those cultures, understand how knowledge about them can help us today, and develop the critical thinking skills that come from primary source analysis.
