This KS3 lesson should take one hour to complete. The Power Point leads students through all activities and all accompanying resources are included. This is my first Year 7 lesson at the start of our first unit on Medieval Realms.
Aims and Objectives:
- To know some facts about life in the Middle Ages.
- To select evidence from sources to answer a question.
- To apply this evidence to reached a balanced judgement about life in the Middle Ages (good and bad things).
Activities include a true/false introductory medieval quiz, a source analysis exercise that encourages students to use source material effectively to support their points (this starts with a collection of negative sources before balancing these with positive sources), a vocabulary homework with test sheet on the next unit- The Battle of Hastings.
