Mary Queen of Scots Story - Visual Memory Exercise

Mary Queen of Scots Story - Visual Memory Exercise

Then provides students with a jumbled chronology as consolidation, which can be stuck in their books, or collected in and a single sheet with the correct chronology on it provided (depending on the class!). Is designed to appeal to visual learners and develop listening skills for all. Is enjoyable and useful lesson and sets the context for the ‘what should Elizabeth do with Mary’ debate.

Medieval church game

Medieval church game

From a SOW I'm currently writing about Henry II and Becket. This board game is about the medieval church. A priest, a noble and a peasant have to get to heaven. Journey by way of church courts and indulgences, to set the scene for the specific church privilege which caused conflict between Henry II and Becket and also the indulgences issue which is a long-term link to a planned future unit on the reformation.
