Many people know that 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution but did you know that the zipper is also 100 years old? And that its 200 years since the death of Jane Austen?
Anniversaries 2017 is a collection of viewable/printable resources designed to promote awareness of some events whose anniversaries fall this year.

Images
A collection of viewable/printable resources designed to promote awareness of some events whose anniversaries fall this year.
Two power point presentations (one set to run through all anniversaries, one to select years etc.) They feature 100 separate people/events with an anniversary this year.

There is also a power point with 6 ‘compilations’ of pictures from different years such as 1942 – ideal for printing out for display.

 Activities
A collection of activities/challenges designed to promote awareness of some events whose anniversaries fall this year.
There is a power point with a range of factual based challenges including: A-Z list, matching pairs and sorting into order. They are also provided in a word document which additionally has 4 word searches.
There is also a separate power point with 10 ‘discussion points’ to encourage productive talk (also provided in a word document).

Word searches & quizzes
There are 10 different word searches on people/places/events who have an anniversary in 2017.
However first you need to use the slightly cryptic clue to work out what word you are searching for. Each word search & quiz comes in three different versions (the answers are the same each time); Each has the same clues but one also has the first letter of the answer; one has the number of numbers in the answer and one has both the first letter and number of letters.

All three resources are available in a bundle from our TES resources shop at wisearkresources
