History Revision - Taboo Game

History Revision - Taboo Game

Want to make your history revision effective and fun? Why not try playing History taboo with them! This resource contains 100 slides/cards that follow the normal rules for Taboo (I have included these on one of the first slides). The game covers the following four units: -Medicine Through Time -Nazi Germany -Cold War -Norman and Anglo Saxons There are 25 cards/slides for each unit, but you can easily add more. To make it is easier for you to edit I have grouped all the slides together for each unit (when I play the game with my class I mix all the units up). You can play this game on the powerpoint with the whole class, or you can print off the slides and get them to play in small groups. Both work well. This game is incredibly well received by both students and teachers. An effective and popular revision tool to make those end of course lessons a bit more fun! Hope you find this useful.

Causes of the Wall Street Crash

Causes of the Wall Street Crash

A lesson looking at why the Wall Street Crash happened through an interactive game trying to recreate the stock market. Students should already have an understanding from previous lessons as to what the stock market was and what it meant by speculating. There are some character cards which explain why people speculated in the late 1920s, give each student a different one and get them to summarise why they speculated on the stock market. You will then need dice for the next activity. Students pick shares of some well known companies of the 1920s/still today, they can only invest $1000. Then there are 5 rounds where depending on the round and the number on the dice, students shares will either go up or down. Summarise the lesson with what happened to their shares, then there is a summary task which depending on time can be done in the lesson or as homework.
