Accompanied by comprehensive teaching notes, our curriculum-linked History Interactive! CD is designed to suit pupils of all abilities and is split into differentiated levels to make learning effortless for the whole class. Animations, sound effects, realistic and colourful images bring historical figures to life and get children thinking about what the past was really like.
The activities use a simple drag-and-drop format that children will find easy and straightforward to use. There is a variety of innovative games, quizzes, historical puzzles, sorting activities, timelines, mazes and much more, which engage children as active participants, enhancing and extending their learning in an interactive and enjoyable way. Instructions for each game appear on screen and are read aloud, and they are accompanied by photographs and illustrations of historical artefacts.
Teacher’s notes, which accompany each game, include key enquiry statements, learning objectives and outcomes, aims of the game, differentiation and useful website links.
Ideal for use with a whiteboard or PC.
