This is one lesson from a series of 6 lessons that focus on the History of Toys. Each lesson is fully resourced with anything that needs printing at the end of the PowerPoint ready in a print friendly format.


The idea is to engage students with historical skills (comprehension, chronology, factor sorting, factor prioritisation and paragraph writing) using content they are already familiar and passionate with. We have had a lot of success with these lessons in our school and use them as both introduction to history lessons as well as at the end of year as reward topics to study. They are fun and academically rigorous!



We hope they help!


The six lessons cover the History of…

  • Lego
  • Funko Pops
  • My Little Pony
  • Power Rangers
  • Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles
  • Transformers



Each lesson includes as a minimum:

  • Reading Comprehension Task
  • Video and questions
  • Timeline sort
  • Success Factors behind the brand
  • Bespoke activity to expand the brand
  • Exam style writing question with exemplar and writing support slide.
  • All resources included within the PowerPoint.
