A great end-of-semester revision task for a mixed ability Year 8 / Stage 4 History class. It has proven to be very successful in engaging the most challenging of students, as they have control over the tasks they complete.
Students are able to choose from a range of engaging, ICT-based tasks in small groups. They create a range of products, such as crosswords, posters and Kahoot!s, which are then used by the whole class to revise their understanding of the course topics.
This task requires some access to a computer lab/pod, however, textbooks can also be used for researching appropriate historical terms/questions etc.
The length of the task is flexible, but can easily spread over four weeks or more.
