A well presented lesson on the ways and effectiveness of defending castles in Medieval times. Students are engaged through detailed, well presented resources.
Students are encouraged to design their own castle and its defences. Students are challenged to work in teams and are provided with a king-sized budget to buy the latest medieval castle defences. Students must therefore consider effectiveness against budget. When considering castle defences students are challenged to use prior knowledge on the most effective and damaging methods of attack.
This is a lesson that excites students and really engages them in their learning. Take it a step further and challenge groups to ‘duel off’ against each others castles.
As always - please review!

A high quality set of resources that provided detailed information about the various ways of defending a castle. I also like the concept in which the lesson is delivered. Thank you .
Thankyou so much for your kind review, I am so pleased you enjoyed the lesson!
Excellent resource, really helpful and little adapting needed. Thanks!
Thanks for your fantastic feedback Jonathan. Really made my day!
A superb resource-lots of information that explains the defensive parts of a castle. Like how the students only have 5000 gold coins to spend and they have to be choosy. I would perhaps change the learning objective to:What would you need in order to build an ideal castle for defence? Definitely worth buying though!!!!<br />
Very good - thank you
