Library Lessons - Mapping the Empire

We offer a variety of Library lessons across all departments.  They are popular with the students, who tell us that they enjoy the opportunity to work independently and as part of a team.

‘Mapping the Empire’ is a History Library lesson, where the students are asked to pick a country that was part of the British Empire and produce a fact file on that country.  When the fact file is completed, the student places a dot on the map showing the location of their country.  This allows the class to consider the location, spread and importance of countries in the British Empire.  The teacher is able to take the map back to the classroom at the end of the session to use as a resource throughout the unit.

This term Mr Langley's Year 8 history class provided some colourful and informative fact files for display outside the Discovery Library.
