History Happy Families Collection - OPEN EVENING

History Happy Families Collection - OPEN EVENING

There are x sets of cards that I have designed to be used like the card game 'Happy Families'. There are 10 cards in each set that can be matched into pairs. One card from each pair has an image and the name whilst the other card has some bullet pointed information. This has been designed to be used at Open Evening to engage potential students and instigate conversation about what their historical knowledge is. They could be used as a topic starter in class, or edited to miss information out that students need to fill in, or as a template for students to create their own set. I will be printing them as A4 and laminating them but they could be printed as A3 for bigger display purposes. School logos could be added too. The sets are: WWI Civil Rights Movement The Tudors Crime and Punishment (all punishment) WWII Suggestions welcome - I will be adding 5 more sets as a second bundle once completed.

Literacy Mats - OCR Modern World B

Literacy Mats - OCR Modern World B

I'm trying to encourage literacy within History and I'm hoping that these will help! I've create some literacy mats with the relevant content for OCR Modern World B Paper 1: International Relations 1945-75 Germany Depth Study I've found with my pupils (all boys) that becoming familiar with helpful phrases and the expectations ona regular basis really helps their understanding of how to reach certain standards. I've done separate mats for each topic because I the vocabulary is different for each one. I have combined all of the vocabulary lists onto one A4 sheet which could be given to each pupil for the backs of their books or printed off and held in a wallet on the same display board (almost like a resource centre). I'm hoping to laminate these in A3 and stick to the desks as they are in tables as well as put them on a literacy display board in the classroom. Please let me know if there is anything you could suggest to improve them!
