Medicine in History, Monopoly Game

Medicine in History, Monopoly Game

Medicine in History is a fun topic that brings Ancient and Medieval Civilizations to life. Class research the way that Medicine was practiced in the Ancient World before playing the game. The rules that are included are easy to adapt. Lots of classes like to add questions, alter the rules to make it their own etc. Medicine and it’s history are huge topics so extending the activity is easy to achieve through out of class work. This game has been used for 18 years now and I have found it to really engage learners.

Mythological Creatures

This lesson was aimed at year 9 but could easily be used for younger years. The lesson involves group work and introduces pupils to a wide range of mythological creatures from Classical myth to Harry Potter. They learn what stories the creatures come from, why they are appealing and why they are still used today in fiction and films. This lesson can be used as part of project work or even something more creative such as designing a film poster.

Classical Myth & Religion: Introducing Greek and Roman Religion

Classical Myth & Religion: Introducing Greek and Roman Religion

Designed with the new OCR Classical Civilisation 9-1 GCSE in mind. Students are introduced to Ancient religion in general and the concepts of Hiera & Religio and the contractual nature of worship in the ancient world. In addition to this there is an exercise for students that is designed to compare ancient worship to modern worship and draw out the similarities and differences. There is a wealth of information contained within. The presentation goes through first the Greek gods and then their Roman equivalents. Each of the god's/goddess' areas of patronage are outlined, as are details about their associated mythologies, stories of origin and iconography. An A3 sheet is included to print and photocopy for students to record details about each deity, first for Greece and then for Rome. Primary Sources and GCSE practice questions are included as are model answers which students can use to improve their own answers. A final assessment task is also included which has GCSE rigour and can be used to get an accurate understanding of student's understanding of the topic to GCSE standard. Throughout, all technical terms are explained in 'glossary boxes' and students are encouraged to make a note of these as the lessons progress to build up their own glossary of key terms. The lesson could be easily differentiated for KS3 pupils by cutting out the GCSE style questions and focusing instead on the stories of each god/goddess.
