History Mystery Bags

The history mystery bags are one of my favourite activities (thanks Lesley!). I don’t always use it, because I don’t want it to lose its appeal. At the start of a new unit, I sometimes give the kids a mystery bag. This bag contains clues that the children must piece together as a table group, in order to deduct which topic we will be studying during the term.

At the start of term 2, the contents of the mystery bags were as below:

a rubber ducky... and a few other items!

The kids worked it out, can you?
