This fantastic, fun, challenging, cross-curricula lesson is packed with learning and has elements of: computing, history, writing and speaking and listening, built into a lesson centered around independent learning and research.
Children will be using and applying the historical learning they acquire creatively, as they work through the challenges of the lesson.
An optional competitive element, combined with the fun of potentially becoming a Time Detective (and earning a Time Detective badge) create added motivation and increased engagement towards the learning.
Children research in a holistic way building up a bigger picture of life the time period and then present their creations providing you with an assessment opportunity and a chance to decide the winners. The lesson ideal for either the beginning, middle or end of a history topic or unit. Can be done in an hour but better over two, contains starter and plenary.
