This is one of my favourite lessons. Students read through a very detailed set of notes focusing on the roles of Gorbachev, Reagan, economics, Solidarity and people power. Students then test their understanding of their newly acquired knowledge through a game of Jenga (attach the cards to a block - students place them into factors using the colour coordinated bricks. This activity can also be done as a more traditional card sort). Students then complete the lesson with a word search to promote key terms and literacy. I really hope your students enjoy this as much as mine do. It is pitched at very able 16-18 year old students.

This is one of my students’ absolute favourite lessons. They are given the starter activity ‘sellotape challenge’ and are asked to design a castle defence on their desks. Following this students then proceed to work through an incredibly detailed set of notes which outline the key features and changes as well as reasons for this. The cloze / scaffolded activity then tests and measures comprehension. I really hope your students gain as much from these activities as I know mine always do. These activities are fantastic for setting up a ‘build a castle competition’ - the kind of showcase event that brings great kudos and energy to a History Department!

Tollund Man - 10-page full lesson (notes, history mystery cards, matrix)

I use this as an introduction to Historical skills for my 7th graders and it works really well. Students are given background knowledge and then handed the 13 sources in order. As they receive them they discuss what can be inferred from each piece of evidence and complete the history mystery grid. This is a great lesson designed to get students thinking and handling evidence. I hope your students enjoy it as much as mine do! It also works really well as a transition lesson for students coming to high school and perhaps studying History as a specialist discipline for the first time. This activity sets students up really well for a piece of follow up Historical writing.
