"Kill off the Witches" Starter (plus context)

"Kill off the Witches" Starter (plus context)

This is a 3 slide presentation that is a printable resource. Students are given a witch profile from slide 1, and the teacher walks around the class "killing them off" (making them sit down) using the answers and contextual information given on slides 2 and 3. It is highly engaged and received good feedback from the students. This can be used for very low-ability pupils as well as higher-ability pupils, dependent on the amount of context given. This was used in an English lesson about a non-fiction text written by an accused witch, to consolidate social historical context. However, it would also be perfect for a history lesson.
