King Henry VIII had a few wives, to say the least. Each slide gives specific information about each wife, when she was born, how her marriage to King Henry ended, her offspring (if any), and an interesting fact. Comprehension questions are posed throughout the presentation to ensure content comprehension.
Students research one of the six wives of Henry VIII in groups to provide expert presentations. In this European History lesson, students view a film and take notes on Henry VIII's wives. Students evaluate the information from the Internet and the film to write a comparative essay on two of Henry VIII's wives.
Why did King Henry divorce Catherine of Aragon, and how did he make divorce possible? Young historians will read through each informational slide to learn the story of Catherine of Aragon, King Henry, and Anne Boleyn. They will then respond, in paragraph form,to four critical thinking questions.
Introducing students to the Tudor line with informative and interesting bullet points about Henry VII, Henry VIII, and Elizabeth I, this presentation would be a good tool to contextualize a British Literature class or as an introduction into European History. Each piece of information makes a good launching point from which teachers can carry a thorough and engaging class discussion.
