This great diamond 9 activity has been designed to help students studying the problems facing Elizabeth I, when she became Queen in 1558 . It has been designed to be used with the full spectrum of leaners, but is particularly useful for stretching the critical thinking skills of the more able.

Arrange the remaining diamonds to show any links that you can find between them. Record and explain your reasons. 3. Make a smaller diamond shape using the four most important problems facing Elizabeth I in 1558. Record and explain your reasons.

This lesson can be used as part of a unit on British Monarchs, the Tudors, even Shakespeare or simply as a stand alone lesson. Queen Elizabeth I faced may problems when she came to the throne of England in 1558. The lack of money in the treasury, fear of attack and the issue of marriage. This lesson deals with who Elizabeth could or should marry. The powerpoint takes on the format of the television programme Blind Date (the Dating Game in the USA where one contestant must choose from three potential dates base don what they say. In this case Elizabeth I plays the bachelorette and is offered three men: -Charles Hatton -King Charles of Spain -Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester. -She also has another option to stay unmarried. The students have to decide in pairs or in groups, which choice she should make. I get some of my students to sit at the front on stools (like in the show) and read out the parts to start with and give it a bit of character! The lesson pack contains: - Fully Animated Powerpoint - Table worksheet to fill in aspects of each man - Information sheet on the four options (this could also be cut into separate cards for use in groups.)

This is the easiest and most engaging way to have a revision quiz! NOTE: The original file - ie the template - was created by my wife - also an author on TES under the name 'boosteration'.
