Mrs Humanities shares… 10 fantastic displays for the Humanities

mrs humanities shares

Twitter has been alive with incredible display material this August. To some degree it scares me that people are working so hard during the break but then I remember what I was like the first few years and my concerns turn to ensuring these people don’t burn out.

Since so many of them are sending lots of people direct messages or replies with links in, I thought one way to help would be to collate some of the incredible display material in one place.

All the credit goes to the creators mentioned.

In no particular order then

1 // Stretch and Challenge Geography Display from @mrsrgeog

Nice little display piece to develop geographical thinking. Could easily be adapted for other Humanities subjects. Resources can be downloaded from here

2 // 100 Women from @sehartsmith

Influenced by September 2018’s edition of BBC History Magazine, Sarah decided to create a display on ‘100 Women Who Changed The World’. Here’s a link to her initial inspiration


Sarah has used @missgeog92 ‘s idea of the ‘Hello, my name is…’ badges to create the display. For all the resources visit Sarah’s blog S E HARTSMITH HISTORY.

3 // Histagram classroom display template and significance task from @MrJPteach

A neat little display of ‘histagrams’ to challenge or extend students. The resources provide a template to create your own as well as ready-to-go ‘histragrams’. You can download the resources here.


Also check out Jack’s other display materials here.

4 // Extra Reading from @EduCaiti

A great little idea, inspired by @Jennnnnn_x. An idea that can be easily adapted to any subject. This one has been put up in the corridor to help tackle corridor misdemeanours.

You might also fancy these ideas from @EduCaiti for inspiration

5 // Geography Menus from @MsGallagher92

Not quite a display but material that can be displayed. Gina has produced support menus for her students. They can be downloaded from here.

6 // Geography Case Studies from @siddons_r

It has never occurred to me to use a display board for case study content. Here’s a way to say you some work if you’re a Geographer or to inspire your subject content displays in other subjects. Resources can be found here


7 // Support for Success Tabletop Displays from @Mrs_Educate

Inspired by the work of others Laura has created a set of table top displays to support literacy and extended writing tasks. Her resources are created for the RE classroom but again are easily adaptable. You can download her resources here.

8 // Wonders of the World from @mrsgeogs

Create some awe and wonder in the classroom with @mrsgeogs display. Resources can be found here.

Keeping with the worldly theme with her golden globes reward display.

9 // GCSE Command Terms from @Jennnnnn_x

Although from Geography, these lovelies can be easily amended to other humanities subjects (and further afield). You can download the resources here.

10 // Plenary Cards from @MissKDeighan

Great for a finished board for any subject area. 45 plenary task cards for you to download and use. You can download the resources here.

And here are some of mine you might also find useful

‘Help yourself’ display and station

I wanted to get this post finished after trying to get it done for several days, so I decided I’m adding mine. It is simple, students help themselves to the resources as and when they need them. I don’t have a photo of my current displays unfortunately (will update in the new school year).

Finished Board

I’ve categorised the tasks into those that extend learning, assess learning or encourage reflection on the learning process.  Along with other ideas such as the roll a plenary and peer assessment support. This is an old display and it has since been updated and improved but you can download the resources here. Scroll to the bottom of the post.

Hope there is something of use to you here to inspire you this new academic year.

(I hope to add more as people respond to messages)
