Introductory Prezi: Mussolini and Fascist Italy [interactive]
A brief overview of the main themes and the key events. Students should take notes!
"Who Am I?" Challenge - Mussolini's Italy
Each team will be presented with a clue about a key historical figure. They get 50 points if they guess it correctly. If they wish to 'pass', they get further (easier) clues but the points available steadily decline. An incorrect guess at any point means they get zero points for that round. You can play as many rounds as you wish. It's a great way to revise!
Fling the Teacher Challenge - Mussolini's Italy (45 possible questions)
Another great revision quiz.
I give students 10 minutes at the start of the lesson to try to complete the quiz. Anyone completing the quiz within the available time gets a score based on the amount of minutes left on the clock. They can then move on to the first lesson task, whatever that happens to be, whilst the other members of the class continue to play. I build up a 'leaderboard' of scores over the numerous lessons we have during revision time to build up momentum!
