Ancient Civilisations

Ancient Civilisations: History topic lesson planning for primary schools and teachers.

Ancient civilisations, empires and societies are the focus of these History lesson plan packs for KS1 and KS2. Learn about life in prehistoric Britain, and the wider world, with detailed slides, lesson plans and resources. With fascinating ancient history facts (and challenging questions) included in every lesson, your class will learn all about the characteristic features of societies from the past, as well as their achievements and—in some cases—what led to their eventual downfall.
