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!
