This clever little card sort can be used as a starter or plenary exercise on the impact of the Black Death on England.

Students have two headings and have to cut out the cards and sort them under one of two headings, Britain before the Black Death and Britain after the Black Death.

For more able students I have included an extension exercise or discussion point for the class asking them to assess which was the most important change that took place as a result of the Black Death..

If you have an especially bright group, you could ask them to create a key to identify which cards were to do with money, freedom and power. You could also use these cards to help students plan or revise for an essay or assessment.

Anyway, have fun and stay in touch via social media for the latest updates.
