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 should take one teaching lesson but can also take up to two depending on your class’s age and stage. I tend to spend the second part letting the students use their imaginations to create their own detailed maps. You'll get some great display material out of your class.

This worksheet divides the causes of the Red Scare after WW2 into internal paranoia and external events and how they increased the public and government’s fear of communism in the USA.
Students have to read a passage and highlight the internal and external events in two different colours. They then have to develop their own explanation of how these things increased the fear of Communism. Finally the class must write two P.E.E.L. paragraphs explaining these factors.
I have used this lesson with my GCSE classes for many years and find it is a good and clear way to teach quite a complex topic.

This worksheet uses contemporary sources to investigate the different methods used by the Vietcong fighters during the Vietnam war. The focus is on the Guerrilla tactics and the American GI’s reactions to them. Students have to be able to infer from the sources to get a fuller picture of the methods used by the Vietnamese.
I use this lesson as part of several on the methods of the Vietcong AND the methods of the American troops to help explain why America was unable to win the war.
Students have to complete 5 questions using the sources and then write a diary entry as either an American GI or a Vietnamese fighter using the sources they have just interrogated.
Help your students improve their inference and deductions skills with these lessons. In these lessons students work in pairs or groups to evaluate the evidence and arguments given and reach a valid judgement.
