This is a useful revision resource for the new Early Elizabethan History GCSE Unit from Edexcel and other exam boards.
Basically, each unit has a central title and it is up to the opponent/teammate/student to identify 8 key events, people, themes etc that link to it. You can decide on how much time you want to give them. There are more relevant cards and there are even some cards on exam questions from Edexcel.
You (or your team) have 30 seconds to name eight historical events, people places etc. linked to a certain theme. After eight rounds you add up the score to decide the winner. 1-32 Players or 2-4 Teams
Single player - Narrative Revision: This is a form of revision with which all eight of the Historical 8 must be used to create a story or narrative which meets the criteria of the title. This will aid their recall, as stories are easier to remember than facts alone. This can be a game as well as the partner can judge the effectiveness of the story and award points.
