The decision to drop the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima had consequences far beyond the people in that Japanese city. It changed the world. This activity aims to give a little background to the development as well as some information about the actual consequences on the people in the city. Firstly the students will look at the science of the Atomic Bomb. What is it that makes it work? Secondly, they will look at what happened when the bombs were dropped. The third aspect is the most important one. The aim of the task is for the students themselves to decide if the decision was the right one. This is not just empathising with the people who suffered or even those who made the decision. The students will have to decide themselves and then try to influence their classmates about what the correct decision was. Includes Lesson Plan, PowerPoint and Handouts.

20th Century History: My Life @ 14

(0)
Make History come alive. History is often portrayed as what happened to other people and the students sometimes struggle to empathise with the characters they are introduced to. These activities have the students conduct some historical research on being a 14 year old at different periods over the last one hundred years. Thus the students compare themselves today with their ipads and rights to those children that experienced a vastly different existence during the twentieth century. This activity is not so much about empathising with 14 year olds in the past but more to focus on the idea of change and continuity. The students are investigating their peers of the last one hundred years. What is different, why is it different and is now better? This activity opens up history and encourages the students to see themselves within an historical context. Includes Lesson Plan, PowerPoint and Handouts.

IQResourcesIQResources

KS3 & KS4 History: Code Breaking & Numeracy

(0)
This is a brilliantly interactive resource that makes the students think from the very moment the lesson begins. They have to crack various codes in order to work out the next part of the lesson. What's more this is a useful way to discuss numeracy within history as codebreaking has mathematics at it's heart. This is all part of an exercise that encourages the students to think about the activities at Bletchley Park and the breaking of the Enigma code. This works as a stand alone lesson or as part of work on the D Day landings or the Atomic Bomb as it is all about secrecy and codes.

The aim is to create a visual summary of an historical event, from the main topic down to some of the key people involved. The Tree can be created as a piece of research on a new topic. The students can add to it as the topic develops. Alternatively the Tree can be created as a conclusion to a major class project. Each student can be given a task and once completed it will sum up all of their work.
