The French Revolution

The French Revolution

This is the complete package for teaching the French Revolution! I have used this in the classroom alongside the textbook. I find that the PPT is highly visual and students respond well to it. I have attached print out coins with this package. These coins can be printed out and used in conjunction with the PPT. I have split the students up into 4 groups (The king and the Three Estates) and given each group equal coins (with the king receiving the stack of coins). As you progress through the PPT, you will see prompts after certain events where one of the three estates will need to pay a tax and you can then take coins off the representative group. I found this activity very effective , it adds and element of fun, allows students to emotionally connect with the material and engage and the students will remember it. 2 x cloze worksheets which can be used as revision, assessment or an activity in the classroom or homework. 1 x sheet with test questions and answers (for teacher) and this assessment features on the PPT at the end of the topic. I hope you find this resource useful and please leave me a review and let me know what you think!
