There are 50 slides in this PP, alongside a range of starters/plenaries for each sub topic within the unit. There are also a range of questions that could be used for different activities and stretching students thought.
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.
Careers pathways lesson:
This lesson gets students to think about the different career opportunities they have after leaving school, what they include, and which they could be best suited to.
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 lesson allows students to compare a range of business objectives, research business objectives, and then question the ethical issues relating to business.

Hope they are of use, enjoy!
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.
I used this for a year 8 careers lesson, looking at a range of industries and the skills that are needed to gain employment within them.
Fact-sheet to support main activity.
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).
