This assessment should be given after teaching and discussing the history of the Anglo-Saxon period. I have a PP for sale that can be used to teach this information. This test contains a map identification, a checklist, true/false, multiple choice, fill in the blank and short answer questions. The key is included.
I also have many items for sale dealing with the most popular literature from this time period (Beowulf): PowerPoint presentation, a snow globe activity and a casting call activity (both of which can be used as differentiated assessments), writing prompts, etc.
