Cosmos episode 3 video Guide - De Grasse Tyson

This is a video guide that you can give your students for episode 3 of Neil Degrasse Tyson’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. This is a great episode to show students for the Scientific Revolution. Episode 1 is also good to show, if you have the time. This episode is about forty minutes in length. It includes information about Kepler, Newton, and Haley. You can use this in a history class or a science class.

National 4/5 Atlantic Slave Trade

National 4/5 Atlantic Slave Trade

This is the first of two packs which covers the full Scottish National 4/5 Atlantic Slave Trade course. The power points (which have all resources in them to be printed) have been created to be straight to the point e.g. basic background information then jump straight into the exam questions (describe & explain) which is great if you are running out of time so simply want the KU for the course. They are very visual in regards to exam revision activities e.g. for every exam question there is a slide of pictures which pupils will annotate. This bundle includes: Intro & start of the Slave Trade (Tropical Crops) Structure & economics of the slave trade Slave Factories Conditions on the Middle Passage Resistance on the Middle Passage Slave Auctions Working conditions on the plantation Living conditions on the plantation

Events of the English Civil War Living Graph

Events of the English Civil War Living Graph

In this activity, students have to evaluate the impact of certain events during the English Civil War on the two sides. Beginning with the Roundheads they must decide how much each event impacted their fortune in war. Print the graph on A3 size paper and cut out the events cards with one set per pair. Once the students have done that for the Roundheads they must move the cards around the graph to show how the same events impacted the Cavaliers. As an extension I ask my students to think outside the box. For example how would these events impact on a peasant woman that worked for a Monarchist? The aim to get our young people thinking about the effect the same events can happen on different people depending on their background and personal experience. It can also be used to discuss ‘key turning point’ and ‘to what extent…’ questions Then I ask them to write up their findings in an extended answer using the P.E.E.L. structure.
