Card Sort: Impact of the Roman Invasion on Britain
Roy_HugginsRoy_Huggins

Card Sort: Impact of the Roman Invasion on Britain

(0)
This clever little card sort can be used as a starter or plenary exercise on the impact of the Roman invasion of Britain in AD 43. Students have two headings and have to cut out the cards and sort them under one of two headings, Britain before the Roman invasion and Britain after the invasion. For more able students I have included an extension exercise or discussion point for the class asking them to assess whether life for ordinary people improved or got worse after the invasion. If you have an especially bright group, you could ask them to create a key to identify which cards were to do with religion, money, transport or power.

Roman Dingbats / Revision / Card Game

Roman Dingbats / Revision / Card Game

(0)
If you are looking for a fun, interactive revision game on the Roman Empire that can be used as a starter or plenary then this resource for you. It particularly good at injecting a bit of competition which will draw in some of those under achieving students, especially the boys who might be very good at learning key facts via a game. There are three main ways that you can use them. Game 1 involves getting students to read out the key words until the other guesses the topic correctly. Game 2 involves additional challenge and stretch by getting students to describe the topic without using any of the key words on the card. The third game, which adds an additional layer of fun or challenge involves playing a round of Pictionary or Charades. I normally give my students 3 minutes of each round to help activate the learning and warm up the class. You could also have a freestyle round where students decide which game they want to play linked to their learning style. If you are trying to engage some under achieving boys, add some competition and get them to keep score in the back of their books. I would recommend printing them off on card and getting your students to cut them out. Then put the cards into an envelope for class use. If you are a student then keep them in your pocket and use them as a flash card to help you learn the key facts, If there is a term that you do not understand then as your teacher or do some extra research. From a revision perspective, you can print off the cards and get your students to learn the key words for a test or for their exams. These are a win, win resource. The kids will love them and they will help to improve your results. If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.
