Details:

Can your students decide what happened to the Mary Celeste and all of her crew? 

In this lesson they will compare and evaluate 12 possible theories before deciding on the most likely scenario as the 'winner'. They will then justifying their decision both verbally and in writing. The lesson works as a knockout tournament, comparing two theories at a time. They must apply the background in formation presented to them along with the theories to come up with the most plausible answer. It is great for developing higher order thinking skills especially when they have to tease out the strengths and weaknesses of each idea. It also provides me with some fabulous display ideas using the students work!

The lesson contains:
- 23 slide powerpoint.
-12 Theory cards (on powerpoint to be printed off in handout mode and cut out - they are in colour and black and white to help you save some ink!)
- 2 page background information handout.
- 3 page detailed lesson plan
- Tournament structure handout (also on powerpoint in colour and Black and white)

 

Thanks for looking!
