Significant Events Activities

  Significant Events


  1. Research any significant events in your local area – what made them significant? Are they still remembered today? Are there any signs of it where you are? Did it affect more than just your area?

  2. Choose an event from history and create a news report about that event. Film yourself sat behind a desk, write a digital report or write a newspaper report about it.

  3. Pick 3 significant events and try to link them together – are there pieces that could link them together? Perhaps it’s location? People involved? When they happened?

  4. Choose an event and write a diary entry as someone who was there. How would they feel? What would they see and hear? Who else would be there with them? What is the tone of the diary entry?

  5. Write an alternate version of an event from history. What would have happened if the Titanic had never sank? What would have happened if Russian landed on the moon first? What would have happened if the Romans hadn’t invaded Britain?
