Description

With our The Middle Ages Lesson Plan, students will be able to define the Middle Ages, and identify various people and events during the time period, and create a personal coat of arms.  This lesson reinforces effective research strategies and leverages creativity to solidify understanding of the Middle Ages concepts.

Sample Classroom Procedure Snippet:

  1. Ask: What do you think would happen if suddenly, throughout the world, all of the governments collapsed and there was no order in the various countries of the world?
  2. Allow for responses and discussion leading to the fall of the Roman Empire and the introduction of the Middle or Dark Ages. Impress upon the students the “Dark” means there were very little records kept about the time period.
  3. Distribute the Middle Ages content pages. Read and review the important terms with the students, answering all questions, checking for understanding. Encourage students to do further study on their own as well.
  4. Distribute the Practice Page reminding students that these are just a few more of the important events and people of the Middle Ages, and the entire school year could be dedicated to learning about the time period.
  5. Allow students access to the Internet or other resources to complete the Practice page. Once completed, review the information with the students volunteering their responses.
  6. Distribute the Activity page for the Coat of Arms, the colored pencils, glue, and the student’s choice of colored or white construction paper.
  7. Review the definition of a Coat of Arms and the instructions. Allow students to be creative, images from the Internet or magazines may be used in lieu of drawings.
  8. Once all students have completed, allow each to present and explain their personal coat of arms to the class. (You may wish to make this optional for the class due to the personal content.)
