  1. On post it notes write down what you would like to know about Bronze Age Cities.
  2. Stick the post its on the 'Idea's Wall' at the back of the classroom.
  3. Put the word civilisation in the middle of your page. Mind map the different aspects that make up a civilisation, try to use more than one word. If you are struggling, use the useful resource under the padlet.
  4. Out of your different factors on your mindmap rank which are the top three in terms of importance.
  5. Since you defined the word civilised in the terminology section above, using the padlet below write down two positive and two negative consequences of areas becoming 'civilised'.

Activity Two - Watch

  • If you are not given a question grid how do you write notes? Share you ideas with the group.
  • Collect a piece of A4 paper and coloured pens from the cupboard and write notes on the key points from 'Crash Course History'.
          • Think:
              • Who
              • Where
              • What
              • Why
              • When

Crash Course History - Bronze Age Cities




Activity Three - Group Project


As a class you will be divided into four teams of approximately five or six of your peers to investigate a specific Bronze Age City. You will be creating a book which will be able to inform Year 6 and your parents about specific Bronze Age Cities. As a team you will divide up the list of tasks below. This year we will be focusing on the city states of - Thebes in Egypt, Mycenae in Greece, Ashur in Mesopotamia and Gojoseon in China/Korea.



A - Research Question

Taken From: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/veAXCyilee8/maxresdefault.jpg

Before we even start to research each team will need to devise a research question. This question will help to focus your research and give your books a purpose. But how do you devise a research question? Where do you start? Have a look in the text box below for help and then as a team try and write a question.

Question Formation

  • Write your final question in the middle of a piece of A4 plain paper and blue tack it to the window.
  • Each group will be given the chance to review each question and suggest how the question could be improved by writing suggestions on each piece of paper stuck to the window.
  • Each group will then have time to review the suggestions and decide on a final question. This question will go on the first page of the book.

Justifying your Question

  • Now justify why you have chosen that question. Why is it important to ask? How will it help your research.

Research Question

Think About:

  • Command word to use - these can be found on the blue cupboard doors.
  • What is the focus? 
  • Try and use the key concept and related concept terms - systems, innovation, specialisation

B - Information to Include
