Defending a Castle
mrshopehistorymrshopehistory

Defending a Castle

(4)
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!
