Year 7 Introduction to History

Discussion in 'History' started by penyard52, Jul 15, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    I'm starting to re-work our introduction to History that we do with the Y7s in September. Does anyone do anything flash to grab their attention? They're in their tutor groups for the first 2 weeks before being setted, so need something mixed ability that can really excite them about studying History.
    Any and all thoughts gratefully received!
  2. This looks amazing! I am desperately searching for something like this! If I could steal your resources I would be so grateful!
  3. Hi isabelm,
    I've been looking for resources to teach a Y7 introductory unit. I'm a primary trained teached teacher witha history degree. In my new job in a small private school I'll be teaching Y7 and 8 History- bit nerve wracking!
    Please would you be able to pass on any resources/schemes of work you use for this topic- the doctor who idea soungs great!
    Thanks, Becci
