A lesson plan with resources looking at how the tudors lived, how their houses were made, what artefacts they used, and how to recreate a Tudor toy – download
Resources: Ball & Cup image (Doc), Ball & Cup instructions (Doc), ‘Tudor activities’ (Doc), ‘Tudor artefacts’ (Pdf), ‘Greensleeves’ music )mp3), ‘Tudors’ slide file (PPt), question mapping file (XML)
For use with: Visualiser, Audience Response System
I always like to make history practical, so comparing toys, like we did, & making a simple Tudor style ball & cup game worked on lots of levels. The visualiser was a big part of the lessons (the children really got into it so it went beyond the original plans). & the Text & Drop facility on the ClassComm got everybody involved!
A set of 9 Egypt based slides – download
Resources: ‘Egypt’ slide file (PPt), question mapping file (XML)
For use with: Audience Response System
These slides were a way of introducing ClassComm to our Year 3s, hence the introductory slides before a change of question type (I can copy & save them for use these again for other quizzes). This was an interesting way to end our topic, especially with the Likert question where the children can give their opinions about the Egyptians. Next topic I will start & end with a quiz to see how the children have learnt!
P.S. The Egyptian artefacts we borrowed were amazing under the visualiser.
