Why did Medieval people go on the Crusades? Interactive PowerPoint Adventure

Why did Medieval people go on the Crusades? Interactive PowerPoint Adventure

If you’re looking for a fun and interactive way for your students to learn about the crusades this PowerPoint-based lesson could be for you. It’s based on the idea of ‘choose your own adventure’ games. Students time travel back to Medieval England and find out the reasons why people went on the crusades to Jerusalem. Students have to navigate their way through the presentation making decisions on who they ‘speak’ to and what they read in order to answer the questions on the question sheet. The students then can use their discoveries to answer the ‘mini-essay’ question: Why did people go on Crusade in the Middle Ages? CONTAINS: INTERACTIVE POWERPOINT QUESTION SHEETS MODEL ANSWER SHEETS I have used this with my classes every year and they enjoy it a lot. It’s just a different way to learn the topic or to refresh their memories for a test. If you have access to a computer suite it works very well as an individual or pair lesson but it easily be used in a teacher led lesson with the whole class. I have done this both ways and it has been successful. With older years (Year 7) it would work well as a supplement to a wider unit on the crusades. I hope you like it! If you are interested you might like to check out some of my other ‘Middle Ages’ history lessons in my store. Thanks for looking!

Asssessment task: The Mongol Expansion

Asssessment task: The Mongol Expansion

There are 3 parts to this task: 1. Create a model of a Mongol weapon or armour or piece of clothing, 2. Write a brief information report on the item that you have selected, 3. Include an annotated bibliography of at least 4 sources of information for your task. This has been a very popular task over many years and is guaranteed to maintain student engagement. I suggest that you advise school staff of the day that the task is due so that they are aware that models of knives, swords, shields etc. will be coming directly to you at the start of the day. This will avoid misunderstandings. Some of these models have been truly outstanding replicas! This assessment task meets the requirements of the NSW History K-10 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum and BOSTES assessment guidelines. Stage 4 Depth Study 6: The Mongol Expansion This is a great task to promote History!
