If this is the answer, What is the question?

Based on the popular Mock the Week Game segment, this game presents students with an answer and then they must answer with a question that would fit with the answer. This resource has general historical questions in it which could be used for Open Evenings. Included in the pack is a teacher sheet which displays all the answers. As with all games of this nature, whilst you are looking ideally for the question detailed, credit should be given for questions which are still true.

This set includes a PowerPoint and Revision Booklet. The Powerpoint is designed to be delivered alongside the revision booklet and the two link together. The Powerpoint contains the page numbers that each activity can be found on, allowing students to use the booklet whilst having additional support via the Powerpoint. In addition to this the Powerpoint contains four revision games included: - Guess the Word (Similar to the Taboo Board Game) - Headliners (Students see the first letters of a headline and have to work out the answer) - If this is the Answer, What is the Question (12 answers all relating to the topic) - Presidential Elections, Who Won? All elections from 1932 - 2012. The revision booklet contains activities for students to complete including timelines, biographies, mind maps and of course Exam answers. For each of the three key questions that are posed, there are AQA exam questions for both 8 and 12 marks, complete with mark schemes. This resource also has links with the Alphabet Agencies poster which is featured in the Revision Guide. The Poster can be downloaded here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/alphabet-agencies-poster-11131564 This resource pack contains two copies of the PowerPoint, one designed for older machines 1997-2003 and one for newer machines post 2007.

UK Political Parties Bingo - Starter/Plenary

UK Political Parties Bingo - Starter/Plenary

(1)
A great game I've used that can be good for a starter or a plenary to just about any Politics/Citizenship lesson. I&'ve used two versions, the easier version is for younger years, but has been useful for Sixth Formers on Friday Afternoons! This version is just party names. The Harder one is party descriptions sometimes containing stance on economic or social policy and political leaning. This is better for older students, or as a challenge for KS4. Have Fun! I know my pupils have!

AQA Interntaional Relations Student Sticker Book

AQA Interntaional Relations Student Sticker Book

(1)
This is a fun way to deal out history rewards to students whilst encouraging revision. Each unit first year of teaching has at least 8 stickers for students to collect. Included is a blank set of stickers which you can customize to suit your own needs. Stickers can be downloaded via Dropbox from the link above This can be expensive to run in school therefore it’s suggested that students contribute towards the cost of the book where appropriate. Hope you all find it useful as I know I have and classes that use it love it as a reward, even right up into Sixth Form!
