A variety of activities have been included within these lessons to maximise engagement and cater for differing learning styles. Examples of activities include - Facebook profiles, road maps, songs and plenty of opportunities to work on source analysis and skills vital for GCSE. Challenge activities (in pink bubbles) have also been included in each lesson.
Used with a higher-ability Year 8 class, but can easily be adapted to fit other ages and abilities.
Some parts, i.e. information, have been taken from other resources, but most activities are my own.
Please rate my resources! Thank you and I hope your students enjoy these lessons as much as mine did :)
