History - Christmas Quiz - Ideal for you last lesson before Christmas

History - Christmas Quiz - Ideal for you last lesson before Christmas

This is a quiz that I have created to use with my classes in the last week before Christmas. It contains four rounds of 6 questions which are general knowledge either about history or Christmas itself. The quiz is broken into two parts with a peer assessment for Part 1 and Part 2 to break up the lesson. I have recommended capping groups at 4 but you are obviously free to change this and increase/decrease it. There are some tricky questions included (e.g. a picture of a young Churchill for name the historical figure) but I have tried to make it accessible to keep students on-board. Merry Christmas.

Pupils consider the different issues between Charles II and Parliament once the restoration has occurred.

Pupils then consider the type of person Charles II was, and how this might cause issues, before going into some role play to discuss the issues at hand. Some information about the Restoration Settlement is given and discussed, before pupils then consider the different specific areas of issue and complete a guided table on this. Pupils then summarise a passage of reading on some of the issues for Charles using poetry, before showing their understanding through pictionary.
