Brexit - Why did Britain vote to leave the EU? Independent research task

(0)
I made this for an A-Level taster lesson, to show pupils what a typical History A Level lesson might look like. The PP gives a background the the EU - what is it, who is involved, how much does it cost and what are the main arguments in support of and against it? Pupils are then asked to work in pairs to investigate why Britain voted to leave. They are given 8 sources to study (links are on the PP to video clips, newspaper articles etc) and have to highlight/mindmap the key reasons why voters chose to leave. Pupils then prioritise the reasons and make links between them, as they would be asked to do in an A Level exam.
