Hello, and welcome to my resource shop. I aim to create original resources for KS3, GCSE and AS/A2. I also aim to provide resources on the less obvious, mainstream topics and bring in elements of the LNF. I have 20 years experience as a History teacher, and 15 years as HoD. Have a look around and grab a bargain! 😄 Please leave an honest rating on any resources you may buy. 👍

Elizabeth and Mary, Queen of Scots: a de Bono's Thinking Hats activity

(0)
An interesting group activity on the options available to Elizabeth when dealing with the threat of her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots. (Enough for 2 lessons). Each group (ideally no more than 3 pupils) are allocated 2 Thinking Hats (slide 4-5) and have to approach the issue of how to deal effectively with Mary (firstly in 1567). The coloured hats give each pupil a specific role within the group. All required printable sheets are found within the ppt (e.g. slide 8 is the colourless version of the group sheet, but keep the coloured version projected to guide them and slides 4-5 have the Thinking Hats and need cutting up for the pupils etc.) The ppt will then ask pupils to consider what Elizabeth should do in 1587 one Mary's involvement in the Babbington Plot was uncovered (slides 10-14). The last slide will give pupils the opportunity to give their opinion (based on their conclusion to slide 14). Was observed using the first part of this resource, and got an excellent as it covered so many bases! Enjoy.

The Treaty of Versailles: de Bono's Thinking Hats activity

(0)
An interesting group activity on the aims and objectives of the Big Three at Versailles. Each group (ideally no more than 3 pupils) represents one of the Big Three. Group members are allocated 2 Thinking Hats (last slide) and have to approach the issue of how to punish Germany from the perspective of their individual (Wilson, Lloyd George or Clemenceau), but also from the specific roles provided by their coloured hats. All required printable sheets are found within the ppt (e.g. slide 3 will need to b cut up into three, slide 9 is the colourless version of the group sheet, but keep the coloured version projected to guide them and slide 10 have the Thinking Hats and need cutting up for the pupils etc.) Was observed for this lesson, and got an excellent as it covered so many bases! Enjoy.

Why did witch executions increase in the 1640s and 1650s?

(0)
A two lesson task looking at the various causes in the rise in witch executions in the mid C17th. Starter tasks (e.g. bar graph) are aimed at developing aspects of Numeracy. Pupils consider to which category the various examples belong. They also conclude with their opinion of the three biggest factors that contributed to the craze. This is a reworking of my original resource, and is more focussed on the Interregnum.

1750 to 1900: an age of change

(0)
An introductory lesson/task for the Industrial Revolution. Pupils read the information sheet to complete a comparison task/sheet on aspects of British life in 1750, and then in 1900. (L5 task) Additional questions ask pupils to consider the similarities and differences between today and 1750 (or 1900), and consider the reasons for those differences. (L6+ tasks) I have also added a numeracy based task on the growing population. Enjoy.

Does Henry VII deserve a statue in the Marble Hall of Welsh Heroes?

Does Henry VII deserve a statue in the Marble Hall of Welsh Heroes?

(0)
A simple task to get pupils to think about what constitutes a national hero, what that person had to do to deserve such admiration, and whether or not Henry Tudor (VII) deserved such a title in 1916 when statues representing heroes of Welsh History were unveiled for the first time in Cardiff City Hall in 1916. The powerpoint/task is self explanatory, and has proven successful in getting pupils to consider how values have changed since 1916. One slide referring to the 11 statues provides an opportunity for a lively debate on whether or not they think they should still be regarded as heroes, and if not, who they'd replace them with! Enjoy!
