This begins prior to reading Crispin: The Cross of Lead. Designed to provide information about the Middle Ages, specifically the Knight's Realm, Merchant's Realm, Nun's Realm, and the Peasant's Realm. Class members complete a WebQuest, fill out a KWL chart, watch a video, and take notes throughout the research process. They use these notes to create a brochure in Microsoft Word about their realm. Presentations complete this well-designed plan.
Any presentation that starts with review or critical thinking questions makes me smile. Learners first answer three review questions, then they dive into a lecture. Slides provide graphically organized information and images to help kids understand the role of the church during the Middle Ages. A writing prompt at the end of the show will help them summarize what they've learned.
Upper graders get a glimpse into the amazing time period known as The Middle Ages.
