Looking at illuminated Manuscripts: The Modern Day Planner

Students compare illustrations from the book of hours with modern day calendars and planners. In this calendar comparison lesson, students examine "The Annunciation" by Master of James IV of Scotland before discussing the use of a book of hours. They watch a video about calendar pages in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Students compare the works to a modern calendar/planning book and then create a book of hours.

Jesenia R.
Lesson plans are so much easier to write with all the ideas I get from Lesson Planet. As a student teacher I really appreciate the ideas and experience I can get from other teachers.
