The History of Weddings by Nik Peachey on iBooks

This lesson is based on an infographic about weddings, their history and some related customs and practices.
In the lesson students will explore their opinions of weddings and marriage and discover some new information about the origins of various wedding customs.
The aims of the lesson are:

  • To help students explore and articulate their existing opinions of marriage and weddings.
  • To help students understand and evaluate visual information.
  • To develop students’ abilities to check and evaluate the credibility of information.
  • To help students develop their abilities to carry out online factual research.
  • To help students develop the ability to synergise information from a range of sources and formulate written arguments around that information.
