There is a plenary quiz where students have to guess which expedition the quiz relates to.

Life on the Plantation - Full DOUBLE lesson with differentiated active tasks.

Life on the Plantation - Full DOUBLE lesson with differentiated active tasks.

These are two full double lessons focusing on Life on the Plantation. The first lesson focuses on what life was like for enslaved people on the plantations. This lesson involves groups sharing a pack of evidence and completing an evidence log. This way, they are learning about the life of people on the plantations using first hand accounts, and beginning to use key historical skills, like supporting their claims with evidence. This lesson includes an in-PowerPoint timer, a pack of varied evidence, a starter and a plenary. The second lesson investigates a number of hypotheses surrounding life on the plantation. Students will learn that you cannot generalise the lives of enslaved people, as they all have different stories to tell. This lesson involves them each taking on a character from a plantation. They will use these characters to form an answer to their hypotheses.
