I want to avoid videos with most of my classes in the last week of term.

I intend to play simple things like:

A-Z in your book and think of words from the topic we have studied that begin with each letter. Do it in teams for small prizes / respect!

Anyone else have simple (or more complicated!) history activities they do that are fun but avoid DVD overload...?

Thanks

Tom

One of my non specialists came up with Come dine with me last year - who would you invite - seating plan - menu for each house - questions - what would cause arguments etc. Worked well with Y9 today for last ever lesson!

Its from a green book Medievl realms.

I photocopy the page onto A3 and its a board game but the kids love it and usually lasts a whole lesson. They have chance cards a bit like monopoly - e.g you walk under a window and get covered in human excrement that has been thrown out of the window, miss a turn as you are cleaning yourself up etc. They have to get the whole way round the board but can't earn any money till they find somewhere to live and lots of things happen on the way!

It isn't a game, but last year my Year 8s worked in groups to produce a Horrible Histories style mini magazine based on the units they had looked at during the year. They really enjoyed it because they could focus on the bits they had been interested in and do more research, it was interesting to see that different groups focussed on different areas. Plus many made quizzes and crosswords to go in. Makes good display material.
This year I might do similar but have them film segments and put it together for Open Evening in September... :idea:

we fill our last lessons with presentations: group work on who you think is the most significant person/ event etc from the time period studied this year. Can be something they have not done in class. Yesterday I had from one class: wars of the roses, Robin Hood legend (twice), the black death and we still haven't finished. we do peer marking too to keep the focus.
