Draw a Concept: transpose an idea into an image

As pupils get older, their understanding of the abstract in history improves. Concepts such as ‘socialism’, ‘revolution’ and ‘fascism’ are (normally) more easily understood among individuals over the age of 16 than among younger pupils. The purpose of this activity is to give pupils an opportunity to think about, visualise, and therefore discuss, a historical concept.
