Your history project for the next two weeks is a historical enquiry to answer the question –
How has life changed within living memory?
The idea is to find out more about life in the past and what was the same and different for your parents / grandparents / aunties /uncles when they were growing up. You can gather evidence by speaking to members of family which you could do over the phone, by email or by using FaceTime / Skype for example – hopefully this will help bring a smile to their faces too
You can present your findings in whatever way you like. Some ideas that we have had are: you could create a PowerPoint, a poster, a non-chronological report, do a drawing or video / record yourself doing a news bulletin. You may have some other great ideas too - the decision is yours!
Please watch this short video below to hear about the enquiry process:
You can also view PowerPoint which explains the enquiry in more detail by following this link: https://www.mrtdoeshistory.com/changes-within-living-memory
You can use the template below which will guide you through planning your enquiry, gathering evidence, analysing and presenting your findings. You could fill this in if you want to, or just use it for some ideas. You can find this template on the next two pages.
If you have any questions, feel free to email us and we can help
Most importantly, have fun and enjoy finding out about the past!
