    I'm really hoping someone can help me! I have a lesson observation for a job I REALLY want on Tuesday. It is in a Y5 class for 30 minutes, and the focus is on History. Their current topic at the school is the seaside, and so I wanted to focus on the history of Blackpool maybe how it has changed, does anyone have any great lesson ideas for this? I would be really greatful

    Industrial revolution, advent of the locomotive, rise of the British seaside resort...?

    History and maybe some 'British values' chucked in for free...

    Kids in groups come up with ideas about life might have changed for people during this era...?

    I originally wanted them to discuss key similiarities and differences on how blackpool has changed, before using this information to research and debate whether the change was positive or negative! however, I do not think I will fit all this in 30 minutes, and I'm not sure of an instant hook I can use with the children to instantly engage them

    Chuck a load of sand on the tables - That'll get their attention!

    Pictures of the Illuminations might provide this?
    Then postcards of Blackpool through the decades for them to discuss changes? Each table could have a different decade and then you could compare and contrast them in your extended plenary?
