Summary

This practical resource book presents ways in which teachers can help to develop children's problem solving and thinking skills through a range of history topics. The book contains classroom-based activities that have been tried and evaluated by teachers and children. Most importantly, the contributors also show how the skills developed through rigorous historical investigations can be used across all areas of the curriculum.

Topics covered include a detailed account of a world history investigation on Ancient Egypt; teaching historical skills using artifacts; small group work on local history, the Vikings and the Second World War; working in depth on aspects of the Tudors; and developing writing skills through a study of the Romans.
