    Evening all,

    Does anyone have any lessons/ideas for a very interactive/engaging Year 6 into Year 7 taster lesson for History? Have some ideas but a few more would be appreciated!

    Many thanks in advance.

    I usually do a 'why is chronology' important lesson. Timelines and what not. I then finish with a brief look at anachronism to hammer home the importance of chronology. Usually getting students to look at the pic and identify the ideas. Students seem to enjoy the timeline activity (and it gives them something tangible to take home) and the anachronism task, if you do it as a think, pair, pair, share can be quite fun.

    There's a really good 'whodunnit' that introduces primary and secondary evidence here on TES. I adapted it for a 45 minute lesson last year and it was fabulous.

    I am history teacher who has gone into Year 6 classes in our feeder schools as part of a transition project. I teach a lesson that fits in with their World War 2 unit and it is always very well received by teachers and pupils. I'm planning on uploading it on the TES resources in the next few days if you're interested.
