How has life changed within living memory?
The aim of this pack is to introduce children to the concept of living memory as a chronological term and the disciplinary concepts of continuity and change, evidence and similarity and difference. All evidence can be gathered by speaking to family members over the phone, e-mail or via Skype.
The findings of the enquiry can be presented in whichever way suits your child best - be that using PowerPoint, a non-chronological report or drawing.
This pro-forma is a guide through the process of creating the criteria that will be researched as part of the enquiry. Children can fill it in completely or use the principles as a guide - the choice is theirs!
The attached video is intended as an explanation to enable children to understand the enquiry process they are following and the historical concepts they will be considering.
