This stand alone lesson teaches children about chronology and historical events. Children start by ordering a set of cards with dates on then learning what the terms BC and AD stand for. They can then have a go at re-ordering their cards with their newfound knowledge and then complete and activity sheet on key dates in history.
Please note, as I am from the UK, some of the time periods mentioned are British (Tudors, Victorians etc) - however, this could always be a starting point for a discussion about these time periods!
I hope you enjoy this product and find it useful. This lesson originally came from a set of 9 lessons on Ancient Egypt. The full set is available at my store.
