Description - Using History to Develop Thinking Skills at Key Stage 2 by Belle Wallace
This practical resource book presents ways in which teachers can help to develop children's problem-solving and thinking skills through a range of history topics. The book contains classroom-based activities which have been trialled and evaluated by teachers and children. Most importantly, the contributors also show how the skills developed through rigorous historical investigations can be used across all areas of the curriculum. Topics covered in the text include a detailed account of a world history investigation on Ancient Egypt; teaching historical skills using artefacts; small group work on local history, the Vikings and World War II; working in depth on the Tudors; and developing writing skills through a study of the Romans.
