AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People

AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People

A number of resources relating to the new AQA GCSE unit, Britain: Health and the People, c.1000-Present. Although these worksheets have been specifically designed for AQA, they could be adapted to suit any 'medicine through time' unit from another exam board. However, many of the worksheets require the blue Health and the People textbook from Hodder. Included are various worksheets, PowerPoint presentations, assessment activities and a bumper exam pack (filled with possible questions). Please note that these worksheets are not comprehensive of the entire course. As the course content is huge, these worksheets/activities are designed to supplement other work on medicine and public health. Nevertheless, they will no doubt save teachers a lot of time!

AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People - Q4 Thematic Comparison

AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People - Q4 Thematic Comparison

A number of resources relating to AQA's Britain: Health and the People unit. These relate to Q4 of the exam paper, which asks students to draw out themes from the course. Included is a revision table where students can make notes on each of the 4 chronological sections of the course; blow this up to A3 to allow enough room for notes. I have also included a guide to Q4 along with an exemplar answer written by a student of mine.

AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People - Pandemics

AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People - Pandemics

A useful card sort and revision sheet for pandemics through time, to be used in conjunction with the 'medicine through time' style unit from any exam board (this was designed for AQA). Give students the cut out cards and ask them to put them together in groups for each pandemic (categories include: name, date, cause, treatment etc.) The content is fairly basic at this stage, as the next task is to transfer this information (in note form) on to the blank table, along with further detail from class work/textbooks. This can then be used for revision, particularly for Q3 of the AQA paper which asks students to make comparisons across the period (e.g. 'Compare the cholera epidemic with the Black Death, in what ways are they similar?)
