HISTORY MYSTERY - The Gunpowder Plot - Was Guy Fawkes Framed?

(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 judgment 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 time 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. The zip file contains: 13 slide, fully animated powerpoint Clues from the scene worksheet Answer worksheet Uses a 3 minute clip Horrible Histories ( available on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMNOnYxhpOY) lesson plan description My classes have had great fun with this lesson. It can stand alone or be used a a project, for example on The Stuarts. TERMS OF USE: This download (free or purchased) is for your own personal use in your classroom or your home.

HISTORY MYSTERY - Did Suffragette Emily Wilding Davison intend to die at the Derby?

(0)
The death of Emily Wilding Davison at The Derby in June 1913 was one of the key events of the Suffragette movement in the UK. When she ran in front of the King’s horse, Anmer did she intend to commit suicide or was she merely trying to break up the race in protest? This has interested historians for over one hundred years. This lesson asks whether her death was intentional or a protest ‘gone wrong’. Your students must gather the evidence and evaluate it to ultimately come to a decision on what they think. They then use this to write an extended piece supported by the evidence available. The lesson contains: 13 slide animated PDF presentation A full lesson plan A clue sheet Evidence graphic organiser. This is great lesson for developing your students’ historical skills as well as improving their knowledge of women’s history and the campaign for the right to vote. The lesson has also been edited to use the phrase ‘intentional’ rather than suicide as this word can be triggering for some people in our classes.

HISTORY MYSTERY The Great Fire of London 1666 - Primary evidence detectives.

(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 video clip that I use when teaching this is from the BBC drama Charles I The Power and the Pas The lesson fits with the common core requirement for students to analyse, evaluate and consider causation. The grade descriptors are skill based ie: identify, then describe then explain then evaluate at the top end of ability. The zip file contains: fully animated and annotated PowerPoint Clues from the scene worksheet Answer worksheet Full lesson plan description This is a fun and memorable lesson that can be taught as a stand alone or as part of a project for example on Stuart housing. I have had teachers tell me that they used this to create a whole day of historical enquiry.

Who was Jack the Ripper? HISTORY MYSTERY

Who was Jack the Ripper? HISTORY MYSTERY

(0)
Can your students decide who Jack the Ripper was out of a cast of 12 suspects? In this lesson they will compare and evaluate 12 possible suspects before deciding on the most likely guilty person. They will then justifying their decision both verbally and in writing. The lesson works as a knockout tournament, comparing two suspects at a time. They must apply the background information presented to them along with the suspect cards to come up with the most plausible answer. It is great for developing higher order thinking skills especially when they have to tease out the strengths and weaknesses of each suspect. It also provides me with some fabulous display ideas using the students work! Update! Students can now click to read each suspect’s details on the screen. Save yourself the printing and easier for distance learning too!* The lesson contains: 23 slide powerpoint. 12 Suspect Information cards (on the powerpoint to be printed off in handout mode and cut out - they are in colour and also black and white versions to help you save some ink!) Information handout sheet on the five acknowledged victims of Jack the Ripper. 3 page detailed lesson plan. Tournament structure handout sheet (also on PowerPoint in colour and black and white) The last task is to write a paragraph, if you would like a framework for this you might like to check out my ‘P.E.E.L. PARAGRAPH LITERACY MATS’ The lesson is does not contain any graphic imagery, all photos of the victims are from when they were alive. But the written content on the victims, being as it is about a serial killer, is a bit gory. So I recommend this for high school more than middle school.

HISTORY MYSTERY The Tollund Man Murder Mystery - Primary evidence detectives.

(0)
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. 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 or Sacrifice (you can choose the most appropriate option depending on the needs of your students) 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 a paragraph or more (a bit like a mini DBQ) explaining what the different options were and what they believe happened to Tollund Man based on the evidence they have collated. There is a very basic outline that can be used if it is wanted but students are encouraged to write their views based on the evidence in their own way using PEEL. The final piece can be marked using the grade boundaries on the end slide. The lesson fits with the common core requirement for students to analyse, evaluate and consider causation. The grade boundaries/descriptors are skills based: i.e: identify, then describe then explain then evaluate at the top end of ability. The zip file contains: fully animated powerpoint Clues from the crime scene worksheet Answer table worksheet with choice of options ‘WH’ questions worksheet. Full lesson plan description This lesson is engaging and can be used as a stand alone or as part of a project on historical skills. It works very well as an introduction to History during secondary school transition at Year 7.

Why did people go on The Crusades in the Middle Ages? INTERACTIVE POWERPOINT

Why did people go on The Crusades in the Middle Ages? INTERACTIVE POWERPOINT

(0)
If you’re looking for a fun and interactive way for your students to learn about the crusades this powerpoint based game could be for you. It’s based on the idea of ‘choose your own adventure’ games. They 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. 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 (grade 7) it would work well as a supplement to a wider unit on the crusades.

Plan your teacher's holiday to London! Great for distance learning.

Plan your teacher's holiday to London! Great for distance learning.

(0)
***Are your students budding travel agents? Can they plan a bespoke vacation for their teacher to the capital city of England, London? This lesson contains all they need to do just that! Using the extensive information and maps provided they have to make a ‘mood board’ on A1 paper of a proposed itinerary. (They can of course present in anyway you see fit) The information slides contain facts about attractions and places to visit as well as opening time, costs and how to get there. These slides on the PowerPoint should be printed off and given to the students - the photos can be cut out and used on their boards. This can be a group project but also works perfectly as a distance learning activity. Everything that they need is on the PowerPoint! I’ve used the conceit of planning their teachers trip because I feel it encourages the students to engage even more fully with the task. The PowerPoint is fully editable so you could put yourself into it rather than have your class plan a random person’s visit! If they want to, the students can also research other attractions you might like personally. Lesson contains a 23 slide PowerPoint with information on and photos of: The London Eye The Cutty Sark The Natural History Museum The National Gallery Hamleys Toy Store Thames River Cruise An open top bus tour. Shakespeares Globe Harrods Department Store A West End Theatre Production China Town Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guard Trafalgar Square The Tower Of London London Zoo As a London native myself I have been to every one of these attractions and can attest that any trip that includes even some of these places would be a trip to remember! I hope your students find it as interesting as my class did. When I go into London after teaching this unit I always take photos of myself at the places they have suggested so that they can see I have ‘taken their advice’ - they love the power!

Pirate Treasure Island - 4 Figure Grid Referencing Geography

(0)
Learn how to work out 4-figure grid references and devise a map to test each other. This lesson is fully interactive and the PowerPoint is animated with sound effects. NO PREP CUTTING AND LAMINATING! Just print out the provided grid and go! I’ve also added plainer versions of the fully animated slides in case you would like to print them out and have the children work on them individually and not as a whole class while the teacher goes through on the whiteboard. It explains the method students should use to work out 4-figure grid references on maps. I have created two animated examples to show the students how to work them out. (The preview is a PDF of just two slides to give you an idea of the themes but the real download is fully customisable and animated and the animated parts disappear out of the way when not needed.) Students have to design their own treasure island using the grid outline provided. They then swap with a partner who has to state where certain things are using 4-figure grid references. I have always encouraged my classes to be as imaginative as they like with this activity resulting in some really interesting magical islands! The lesson could take a one hour period but it would be better over two hours to give students time to fully realise their own designs! **Contains: 10 slide powerpoint with animated explanations Grid proformer for drawing a treasure map (best blown up to A3 size) Symbols that can be used by students in their design.

Why did the Romans invade Britain?

(0)
This is a simple lesson designed to introduce the main reasons the Romans invaded Britain under Caesar. The learning objectives are staggered and your students show their developing knowledge as the lesson goes on by answer set questions. The lesson begins by introducing the Romans Empire and what an empire is. Next the class completes an activity matching the reasons with simple explanations. Finally the class put what they have learnt to use by answering a choice of questions based on ability. The harder question involves weighing up and deciding what they think is the MAIN reason for the Roman invasion.

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. But if not they can be easily deleted from the slides. The zip file contains: fully animated and annotated PowerPoint Clues from the scene worksheet Answer worksheet graphic organiser Full lesson plan description My classes have had great fun with this lesson. It can stand alone or be used a a project, for example on Stuart housing. I hope you find this useful and enjoyable.

Why couldn't the police catch Jack the Ripper in 1888? Cryptogram Puzzle

(0)
Can your students work out the puzzle code and find out why the police could not catch Jack the Ripper? It is an interesting topic and works well as a bell ringer or introduction to the topic. It also works well simply as a brain teaser for any topic. Students have to work out the letter/number code and fill in the paragraph accordingly. Five letters have been given already to help start them off. I introduce an element of competition to keep my classes focused. Not only do they have to fill in the paragraph they must pick out at least 3 key facts or inventions and be the first to tell me as the teacher. Keeps the students heads down and learning something!
