Final suggested activity for students on this period.

After students have visited the Ulster Museum and they have completed some of the activities included in these resources they should consolidate their knowledge and understanding of the key events in this period with one final project. Students should work in class groups on one of the following learning focus areas which will involve independent research and study before delivering a group presentation on these areas to their fellow students.
