Free KS3 History presentation on castle defences!

Show your students the key defensive features of a castle with this free presentation from Boardworks!

From portcullises to barbicans, battlements to murder holes, let our presentation clarify for your class the ways in which castles are built for defence.

Two activities bring the theory to life, with an interactive plan of a castle to be explored, and a matching-up exercise to reinforce the roles of each defensive feature.

Why not use this presentation to spark off a whole-class discussion on strategic castle design?
