Tollund Man Murder Mystery - interpreting evidence using inference

Tollund Man Murder Mystery - interpreting evidence using inference

(7)
Get your students thinking and working like historians with this lesson! I have used this lesson for several years as part of a project on developing history skills in my pupils. Students have to infer and reach a reasoned judgement based on the evidence at hand. This includes primary sources in the form of artefacts and secondary reports. The class works in pairs to decide why and how the man found in the peat bog in Denmark died. They assess the evidence to decide whether it was: Murder, Suicide Illness/natural causes. The evidence is not given to them all at once, instead the teacher drip feeds it throughout the lesson. This is in a bid to challenge preconceived ideas and see if pupils will change their minds when faced with new information or sources. The last task is to write an extended piece (like a DBQ) explaining what the different options were and what they believe happened to Tollund Man based on the evidence they have collated. The lesson fits with the common core requirement for students to analyse, evaluate and consider causation. It is designed for the UK Curriculum and I have kept in the grade descriptors as these may help you with grading your students as they are skill descriptors: ie: identify, then describe then explain then evaluate at the top end of ability. But if not they can be easily deleted from the slides. The zip file contains: fully animated and annotated PowerPoint Clues from the crime scene worksheet Answer worksheet Full lesson plan description My classes have had great fun with this lesson. It can stand alone or be used part of a project on historical skills. If you like this method you may also be interested the following ‘history mystery’ resources in my shop. I hope you find this useful and enjoyable and that your students have as much fun as mine have over the years! Thanks © A.

It includes information on food, entertainment and the religious celebrations happened at that time. From stuffed peacocks to Christmas sports, student will learn where some of our current traditions come from and learn of others that have been lost along the way.

Events of the English Civil War Living Graph

Events of the English Civil War Living Graph

(0)
In this activity, students have to evaluate the impact of certain events during the English Civil War on the two sides. Beginning with the Roundheads they must decide how much each event impacted their fortune in war. Print the graph on A3 size paper and cut out the events cards with one set per pair. Once the students have done that for the Roundheads they must move the cards around the graph to show how the same events impacted the Cavaliers. As an extension I ask my students to think outside the box. For example how would these events impact on a peasant woman that worked for a Monarchist? The aim to get our young people thinking about the effect the same events can happen on different people depending on their background and personal experience. It can also be used to discuss ‘key turning point’ and ‘to what extent…’ questions Then I ask them to write up their findings in an extended answer using the P.E.E.L. structure.

Were the Gunpowder Plotters framed? History Mystery

(0)
“Remember, Remember The 5th of November. Gunpowder, Treason and Plot?” Get your students thinking like historians and evaluating evidence. In this lesson students have to infer and reach a reasoned judgement based on the evidence at hand. This includes primary sources and secondary reports. The class works in pairs to decide whether Guy Fawkes and his fellow accused were guilty of attempted mass murder or if they were framed by the government at the tim was an excuse to crack down on Catholicism in Britain. The evidence is not given to them all at once, instead the teacher drip feeds it throughout the lesson. This is in a bid to challenge preconceived ideas and see if pupils will change their minds when faced with new data or sources. They begin with a clip telling the traditional story of events from Horrible Histories. Then in 3 minute intervals more evidence is presented either not the whiteboard or on a sheet of clues. The last task is to write an extended piece (like a DBQ) explaining whether or not they believe the men were framed, innocent or (most may say) entrapped. The lesson fits with the common core requirement for students to analyse, evaluate and consider causation and consequence. It is designed for the UK National Curriculum and I have kept in the level descriptors as these may help you with grading your students as they are skill descriptors: ie: identify, then describe then explain then evaluate at the top end of ability. But if not they can be easily deleted from the slides.

HISTORY MYSTERY: Why did the Great Fire of London Spread so far and so fast?

(0)
This lesson asks the big question ‘why did the Great Fire of London Spread so far and so fast in 1666?’. Your students have to evaluate the evidence available to decide what they think was the biggest contributing factor. Students have to infer and reach a reasoned judgement based on the evidence at hand. This includes primary sources and secondary reports. The class works in pairs or groups to decide why the Great Fire of London was able to spread so far in such a short space of time. They assess the evidence to decide whether the main reason was: -Human mistakes, -Weather conditions -Housing -Firefighting equipment. The evidence is not given to them all at once, instead the teacher drip feeds it throughout the lesson. This is in a bid to challenge preconceived ideas and see if pupils will change their minds when faced with new data or sources. The lesson also works well as a station activity with the children moving around the room to gather information. The last task is to write an extended piece (like a DBQ) explaining what the different factors were and what they believe was the biggest contributing factor to the fire spreading in this way. The lesson fits with the common core requirement for students to analyse, evaluate and consider causation. It is designed for the UK National Curriculum and I have kept in the level descriptors as these may help you with grading your students as they are skill descriptors: ie: identify, then describe then explain then evaluate at the top end of ability.

Have your students got what it takes to help save Santa this Christmas? He's lost his presents and the big day is looming. Teach your students 4-figure grid referencing in a fun way with this full animated powerpoint lesson. Go through each step of working out a grid reference on the board or it can be printed out for individual use (I've added the same slides to the end of the powerpoint but without the overlapping animation so they are easy to print out and use. Then get the class to draw their own maps and then test each other's map skills. Great for AFL and Peer assessment activities. The lesson should take about 2 hours in total but can be shortened or extended with a bit of imagination and group work. You'll also get some great display material out of your students - see the photo I've attached. Thanks for looking!

The Peasants' Revolt 1381 Full Middle Ages Lesson
PerfidiaBlackheartPerfidiaBlackheart

The Peasants' Revolt 1381 Full Middle Ages Lesson

(0)
MIddle Ages - Power and the People What happened when the Peasants Revolted? This lesson was designed to be taught after a full unit on the Medieval Black Death and it’s consequences, but works just as well as a stand-alone lesson. It can be used as a history lesson or even part of a topic on citizenship and taxation. The Peasants’ Revolt 1381 saw the people of the South East of England rise up and attack London and the King’s advisors over unfair taxation (The Poll Tax). The lesson begins with the causes of the Peasants’ Revolt and students must link them together and ‘make the middle box happen’. This is a good thinking activity to help students to develop their reasoning and explaining skills in history. In the middle box is ‘The Peasants’ Revolt’. In the boxes on the outside are reasons why this happened. They could just draw a line from each cause to the middle box - this would be accurate but does not explain how some causes led to other causes. The children have to create a causation web linking the different reasons, in order. On the lines they have drawn they need to explain using ‘so’ or ‘because’ sentences. Students can use the same box as many times as they like for different causes. FOR EXAMPLE: King Richard II was only 10 years old when he came to the throne in 1377, so he had advisors that the people did not like. In 1377 these advisors brought in the Poll Tax and everyone over 15 had to pay the same amount. This made the peasants angry and led to the Peasants’ revolt. The students could also use the boxes differently and consider long term versus short term causes. They web can then be used as a structure to write a full paragraph on the causes of the Peasants’ Revolt. (A P.E.E.L. structure encourages explanation - see my store for a PEEL writing mat resource)

Why did Medieval people go on the Crusades? Interactive PowerPoint Adventure

(0)
If you’re looking for a fun and interactive way for your students to learn about the crusades this PowerPoint-based lesson could be for you. It’s based on the idea of ‘choose your own adventure’ games. Students time travel back to Medieval England and find out the reasons why people went on the crusades to Jerusalem. Students have to navigate their way through the presentation making decisions on who they ‘speak’ to and what they read in order to answer the questions on the question sheet. The students then can use their discoveries to answer the ‘mini-essay’ question: Why did people go on Crusade in the Middle Ages? CONTAINS: INTERACTIVE POWERPOINT QUESTION SHEETS MODEL ANSWER SHEETS I have used this with my classes every year and they enjoy it a lot. It’s just a different way to learn the topic or to refresh their memories for a test. If you have access to a computer suite it works very well as an individual or pair lesson but it easily be used in a teacher led lesson with the whole class. I have done this both ways and it has been successful. With older years (Year 7) it would work well as a supplement to a wider unit on the crusades. I hope you like it!
