Research Task: What were the Wars of the Roses?
Students are presented with a family tree of the English Royal Family during the
Wars of the Roses. They make deductions from it, identify questions arising, and
then conduct their own research using the web and the school library to solve
the mysteries they have identified. They then complete a quiz on this topic. If each student has a
computer, then a competition can take place: 25 points to the first 5 people to
finish, 20 points for the next five and so on. If you keep a running total
during the course of the year for each time you play a quiz like this, it can
get quite competitive!
