Key stage 4 extension tasks

Key stage 4 extension tasks

My version of a great idea seen on twitter. A generic pack of extension tasks for key stage 4 students. I have laminated, cut and bundled them together with a treasury tag. I keep them at the front of my room in a folder stapled to the wall so students can help themselves.

Sources card sort

Sources card sort

These cards are great for introducing the types of sources that Historians use. Can be used with all year groups and topics. Especially useful for Edexcel students studying Medicine, key topic 5. There are 32 cards in the pack.

'How to...' cards

'How to...' cards

These can be laminated, cut out and held together with a treasury tag. They give students guidance on how to do generic Humanities activities such as write a letter or a newspaper article. Great to support key stage 3 students.

Group work badges

Group work badges

These can be laminated, cut out and a safety pin attached to create badges. Students can then wear them during a group task to keep them focused on their role. There are enough badges for 7 groups.
