Revision Cards / Dingbats: Britain 1840 - 1885

(0)
These revision flash cards cover all the key factors that you will need to know about Britain 1840 - 1885 for AS or A Level. If you are looking for a fun, interactive revision game 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. They can also be used by students as revision flash cards. 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.

Card Sort: Chronology of the Bishops War, 1637 - 1641

(0)
This fun and interactive card sort is designed to help students understand the key events and chronology of the Bishops Wars 1637 - 1641. The wars were the result of Charles’s endeavour to enforce the English Paryer Book in the Scottish Church and of the determination of the Scots to abolish episcopacy and assert the freedom of their Scottish Kirk, backed up by the Solemn League and Covenant. I originally designed this activity as a starter / plenary for my Sixth Form Students studying the English Civil War, but I have written the information cards so that could be easily accessed by lower ability students at KS3 or KS4. When you purchase this resource you will be able to download single page Word document which includes a learning objective and twenty two cards to be cut out and sorted chronologically. I would advise that students feedback their results before sticking them into their book. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Causes of the English Civil War Know: What happened during the Bishops Wars? Understand: What impact did they have on England and Scotland? Evaluate: Why was Charles I forced to recall Parliament? WILF – What Am I Looking For? Can You Describe: What happened during the Bishops Wars? Can You Explain: What impact did they have on England and Scotland? Analyse: Why was Charles I forced to recall Parliament?

Once my students have fed back their results I usually get them to use the card sort to write an extended answer to the question, ‘Was Mary, Queen of Scots a threat to Elizabeth and English Protestantism’ or to write a speech for one of her advisors arguing whether she should have Mary executed or not. The aims and objectives are: Theme:Elizabeth England 1558 to 1603 •Know: Who was Mary, Queen of Scots? •Understand: Why did the Catholics want her to be Queen of England? •Evaluate: How much of a threat did she pose to Elizabeth and English Protestantism?
