Product Description
In this activity, students have to evaluate the impact of certain events during the English Civil War on the two sides. Beginning with the Roundheads they must decide how much each event impacted their fortune in war.

Print the graph on A3 size paper and cut out the events cards with one set per pair.

Once the students have done that for the Roundheads they must move the cards around the graph to show how the same events impacted the Cavaliers. As an extension I ask my students to think outside the box. For example how would these events impact on a peasant woman that worked for a Monarchist?

The aim to get our young people thinking about the effect the same events can happen on different people depending on their background and personal experience. It can also be used to discuss 'key turning point' and 'to what extent...' questions

Then I ask them to write up their findings in an extended answer using the P.E.E.L. structure.
