Great new KS2 lesson on changing techonology in the Iron Age

Using the Mantle of the Expert approach, pupils work as members of an Iron Age hill fort settlement to decide which three of six new technological changes they want to introduce into their community. These include: a sickle,a mirror, a chariot, a quern stone, a javelin etc. To help them to decide, they are first shown why an ard might be a good contender but wouldn’t be one of the top three. Excellent speaking and listening as they discuss, advocate and then prioritise.
