This Absolute Monarchs activity is a wonderfully lesson has students creating pop up figures for 4 of Europe's Absolute Monarchs:

  • Louis XIV of France
  • Philip II of Spain
  • Czar Peter the Great of Russia
  • Henry VIII of England

Included are 2 versions of the 4 Pop Up figures of each monarch and a map graphic organizer with spaces for notes about each person. The map helps students to connect each monarch with their country and makes for a perfect graphic organizer!

An engaging PowerPoint covers everything students need to know about the causes of Absolute Monarchies, Divine Right, and each Absolute Monarch based on state standards. A Google Slides version of the presentation is now also included for your convenience!

There is also a fully-narrated "flipped classroom" video version of the lesson included as well! This video goes through the entire presentation and is perfect for flipping your class, showing in class, sharing with absent students who missed the lesson, or just watching yourself to prep.

This lesson is amazing for your visual and kinesthetic learners as they are creating a fantastic visual representation of Monarchs literally rising up out of their notebooks!
