This excellent activity comes from Catherine Flaherty who has done both a great deal of research to create the character cards and has suggested a wide range of ideas for using them to develop students’ understanding of the impact of the Conquest.
There are 30 character cards providing biographical details of individuals who lived through the Conquest.
The core tasks involves distributing the cards amongst your students so they each identify with the person on their card. Then set them a task or tasks.
You can find the activity and a variety of possibilities here …
