This Teacher’s toolkit is designed to support teachers in using the History of the North East in 100 places in the classroom.
This project tells the story of the creativity and innovation that springs from the North East via a selection of 100 different places, of all ages and types. Some represent engineering or inventive firsts, some mark a creative person and some have several stories to tell. All, however, demonstrate that the North East is a region which has seen incredible moments that have changed itself and the world!
The 100 places teacher’s toolkit encourages use of the places as inspiration for a range of work. The places might inspire debate and discussion or may be near you and be the focus of a visit. The activities are intended to provide ideas to incorporate the places into lessons and activities in the classroom, but can also be used to generate ideas for engaging with the places in person. Each activity is designed to be flexible so pupils can work with a number of places. We have grouped the activities by curriculum area; however most places and activities are cross-curricular.
