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?)
