Headbandz - Who am I? - GCSE History Revision Game

Headbandz - Who am I? - GCSE History Revision Game

This is a fun and engaging GCSE history revision activity based on the popular Headbandz game (a.k.a. Who am I?). The idea of the game is for the students to guess which historical figure is on the card on their forehead by asking their classmates simple questions. The rest of the class can only answer ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. So the better they know the GCSE course the easier they will find the game! There are 60 cards in total. These cards are for: -Medicine and Health Through Time -Weimar & Nazi Germany -The Cold War and Super Power Relations -The Normans and Anglo Saxons These cards are easy to adapt or add to so you can customise the pack if you don’t teach any of these units. A fun, easy to run, popular and effective revision activity.

Shakespeare starter tasks for every subject!

Shakespeare starter tasks for every subject!

I’ve designed this for the whole school, specifically to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday. There are some video links for students to watch but there should be a link to each subject (apart from ICT - apologies) The idea is that students are made aware of the idea that Shakespeare is applicable to every subject and not just English. There are also form time activities for students to complete with tutors.

British Rulers Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover History Monarchs

British Rulers Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover History Monarchs

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘British Rulers’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
