There is also a range of discussion points to aid learning, alongside explanations in the ‘notes’ section highlighting how different activities could be used/and or presented.
I would recommend using a timer for each of the activities to give a bit of pace to the lesson and add a competition element.

This resource includes a PPT alongside a starter, main activity and plenary included inside of the PowerPoint. This is predominently a research idea, getting students to focus upon Nissan as the case study therefore access to the internet or further info on the company will need to be provided.
This resource includes:
Integrated handbook for students to complete all about ‘the Aztecs’
‘Code breaker’ plenary
Support ‘cheat sheet’ for L.A Students
This lesson plan is based around using ‘microsoft encarta’ for researching, however the lesson could easily be used alongside other similar software.
These could be cut out and students have to sort them out into the correct categories, or move them around and get students to order them into the correct column.
Could be used as either starter, plenary, or incorporated before a main activity.
This could be used as a starter or a plenary for students to describe the difference between a need, want, scarcity, the economic problem and factors of production.
Students could either stick the table in their books and number the right answers, or individually pair the right answers.
This could be used whilst teaching ‘Appshed’ to KS3 students. It would be a good homework for either the 1st or 2nd week as it begins to questions the features of mobile applications which will support when students begin to draft their own applications.
This could either be used as an activity in class or as a homework.
This lesson gets students to discuss what an ‘agenda’ is, and then they have to create one together acting as different stakeholders.
The roles are not included in this PPT, however I previously got students to base their activity around the potential opening of an airport. I have added in a video clip that interviews local residents, this could be used to brainstorm the different stakeholders in this situation before planning out the agenda and conducting the meeting (each student acting as a stakeholder in the scenario).

Lesson that gets students to write a professional business letter using the correct formatting techniques. Teacher can create a thought cloud with students as to what the ‘exam criteria’ should be.
This is a KS3 Year 9 lesson I taught around the political and economic impacts of ICT (topic 22). This lesson gets students to look at a range of articles, looking at the impact of corruption politically and how ICT could have a positive and negative influence.

** I had to remove the images for the plenary due to copyright however I have left the names on each slide so is still possible to play, if necessary you can simply add the images back.
