How to attack and defend a castle (Top Trumps)

How to attack and defend a castle (Top Trumps) This resource contains: 11x Attack Cards 10x Defence Cards This resource is an adaptation of a great card game which engages students and enables them to come to their own conclusions about how to attack and defend a castle. Each card has a rating for attack or defence; how easy the method was to make and how quick it was too use. I have used these with my Year 7 classes and also my GCSE classes. Both groups were engaged and came up with excellent ideas about castles and were able to link to the concepts of change over time and the causes for these changes.
