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!

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy worksheet

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy worksheet

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy Background: Originally, Christianity had one church. Because of political conflicts and differences in belief, the western and eastern parts of the Christian Church split apart in 1054. The western church became the Roman Catholic Church, and the eastern church became the Eastern Orthodox Church. Both churches believe in the gospel of Jesus and in the Bible as interpreted by their church. They also believe that God uses sacraments to convey his love to humans. Sacraments are visible signs of something sacred; for instance, the water used in baptism is a sign of God’s power to cleanse people of sin. The Venn diagram below shows other similarities and differences. ROMAN CATHOLIC AND EASTERN ORTHODOX DATA • U.S. state with highest percentage of Roman Catholics: Rhode Island, 51 percent. 2001 American Religious Identification Survey by Graduate Center of City University of New York • U.S. states with highest percentage of Eastern Orthodox: New Hampshire and New Jersey, 0.90 percent each. 1990 National Survey of Religious Identification • Vatican City is an independent state located in Rome, Italy. The Roman Catholic Church claims more than a billion members worldwide. Concise Columbia Encyclopedia, third edition; www.adherents.com • The largest of the Eastern Orthodox churches is the Russian Orthodox Church. It claims 90 million members worldwide. www.adherents.com • In 2003, the world region with the largest population of Roman Catholics: Latin America, 473,000,000 • In 2003, the world region with the largest population of Eastern Orthodox members: Europe, 158,450,000 – - Encyclopaedia Britannica Book of the Year 2004 The 11th Century: Comparing Two Churches Roman Catholic Both Eastern Orthodox Services are conducted in Latin. The pope has authority over all other bishops. The pope claims authority over all kings and emperors. Priests may not marry. Divorce is not permitted. They base their faith on the gospel of Jesus and the Bible. They use sacraments such as baptism. Their religious leaders are priests and bishops. They seek to convert people.

Medieval Siege Warfare hands-on  History Trebuchet Activity

Medieval Siege Warfare hands-on History Trebuchet Activity

For Year 8 History to tie in with medieval studies- students develop their understanding of siege warfare of the medieval castle and also design and test their own trebuchet. This is a fun and engaging kin-aesthetic learning activity that works on and develops skills in working with others, comprehension/literacy, design and self-reflection and critical thinking. It also engages multiple intelligences and higher order thinking/cognition. Students doing this will not even realise they are learning as they will be busy having fun learning, thinking, collaborating, planning and creating. This is an awesome lesson for students who might normally be poorly self-disciplined as they get really absorbed in the task (just set a few ground rules about safety and courtesy). This is also a great introductory activity to link in with a thematic or specialist study in the Black Death (given the theory that the Black Death was initially spread via trebuchets catapulting diseased bodies in the vicinity of Asia). It is also a good initial activity to link in with specialist study of the Crusades given that siege warfare was a part of this. Make sure you also show students lots of images of trebuchets and other medieval siege weapons (plenty online). As a nice adjunct, you might (with appropriate parental permission as needed) also consider showing the Siege of Jerusalem AD 1187 scene from the movie Kingdom of Heaven (about 15 minutes).

Authors often write to explain, to persuade, or the entertain, to persuade or to entertain. Understanding an author’s purpose will help you to interpret what he or she has to say. In addition, to a purpose, an author usually has a personal perspective. This perspective is called a point of view.

If it is not stated directly, try to infer it from the information provided 4. Use active reading strategies.
