Presentation Transcript

 Starter

You will each receive a piece a paper with a question and the appropriate answer. Go up to anyone in the class and ask them the question. Tell them the answer if they don’t know. They will also ask you a question and give you the answer if you don’t know. Swap papers with that person, move on to someone else and repeat the activity. Eventually you should know the answer to all 12 facts which are being passed around the room. They all relate to what we’ll be studying this year.

your task
 Your task

When historians study the past they use two types of evidence: primary & secondary. Primary is evidence that is directly from the time, e.g. an eyewitness account or a dress worn by Elizabeth I. Secondary evidence is produced later and relies on earlier evidence, e.g. a history book or a modern film. Make a list of as many sources of evidence as you can that you can use when studying the past.



TV & radio programs






Everyday objects in museums

Clothing and costumes

Battle sites

Historical monuments – castles, country houses etc
