History Revision - Taboo Game

History Revision - Taboo Game

Want to make your history revision effective and fun? Why not try playing History taboo with them! This resource contains 100 slides/cards that follow the normal rules for Taboo (I have included these on one of the first slides). The game covers the following four units: -Medicine Through Time -Nazi Germany -Cold War -Norman and Anglo Saxons There are 25 cards/slides for each unit, but you can easily add more. To make it is easier for you to edit I have grouped all the slides together for each unit (when I play the game with my class I mix all the units up). You can play this game on the powerpoint with the whole class, or you can print off the slides and get them to play in small groups. Both work well. This game is incredibly well received by both students and teachers. An effective and popular revision tool to make those end of course lessons a bit more fun! Hope you find this useful.

Medicine Loop Revision Game

Medicine Loop Revision Game

This is a Loop revision activity for Medicine Through Time. It works on the same principle as flash cards, but the key words on one side don’t match the definition on the other side. In order to complete the Loop they need to find the student who has the key word that matches their definition (read the instructions below). It is a really fun activity that I mainly use for revision but can be used as a starter, a plenary or a fun activity. Instructions for use: 1 - Download and Print off the sheets. 2 - Cut around the outside edge of all the cards. 3 - Fold over the cards in the middle and glue them so on one side you have key words and on the other side you have definitions. 4 - Laminate the sheets (optional) 5 - Cut out the individual cards. 6 - Give out ALL the cards (at least one per person) 7 - Choose a random student to read out their definition, the rest of the class listen and whoever has the correct key word SHOUT IT OUT! 8 - This second student then flips over their card and reads aloud their definition. 9 - You keep going until you complete the loop and get back to the first student TIP 1 - To make it more effective and more competitive you should time each successful loop and post the times. Get the students to compete to try to beat their past times and other classes times. TIP 2 - Want to make it more difficult? Make the students swap cards every time someone makes a mistake or every time someone calls out. That way they will follow the rules and be forced to learn all the cards.
