Product Description
Arthurian Legends: King Arthur and The Knights of the Round Table – Resources and Activities!

A fully integrated English, Social Studies, and Art unit on King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

Everything needed to complete an entire unit on Arthurian Legends is included, with very little teacher prep needed – simply print and teach! All activities are classroom tested and include creative handouts, information sheets, detailed instructions, templates, and rubrics!

This unit can be done on its own as an English unit on Legends, but also makes an excellent complement to a Social Studies unit on the Middle Ages. This resource is also a great supplement to a "Freak the Mighty" novel study!

This creative and engaging package includes the following:

Arthurian Legends Notes: Includes detailed notes about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, as well as a guided note template for students to fill in important information.

King Arthur Pre-Reading Activity: a short quiz to see what students really know about King Arthur and his knights. A great introduction to the unit. Answer key included!

Create Your One Magazine Cover: The Most Chivalrous Man Alive: Students research some of the knights of King Arthur, and create a full color magazine cover of information relating to the knight they find most worthy of the title of The Most Chivalrous Man Alive! Students love this activity, and they look great hung on the classroom wall!

Code of Chivalry Questions: Students examine the Code of Chivalry, and answer questions comparing the code to rules governing modern times.

Sir Lancelot and the Code of Chivalry: After learning about Sir Lancelot and his exploits with Guinevere, Students examine a copy of the Code of Chivalry (included!), and explain why (or why not) they feel Lancelot follows the code.

Modern Day Code of Chivalry: After examining the Code of Chivalry, students create their own modern codes to live by. The comparing and contrasting of the different codes makes for great class discussion!

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Essay: After learning about this classic tale, students complete an essay discussing whether or not they feel his actions to be chivalrous. A brief essay outline is also included.

King Arthur Movie Project: After learning about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round table, students choose a favorite tale to represent in movie form. Students must write their own scripts and video tape their stories to play for the class. Students love this! A great way to review the tales!

“The Childhood of Arthur” Informational Text and Questions: Students read the page of information on the childhood of King Arthur, then answer questions and summarize the reading. Answer key included.

“The Sword in the Stone” Story, Questions, and Summary: Students read a one page version of the Sword in the Stone story, then answer questions and summarize the reading. Answer key included.
 
King Arthur Graphic Organizers: A variety of graphic organizers to go along with any version of the Arthurian Legends is included. These graphic organizers ask students to examine key character and plot points, compare and contrast, and practice reading strategies. Information and suggestions on where to find kid-friendly versions of the legends (text and online ideas) is included.

King Arthur Close Reading Resources: Several pages of my best selling close reading resources have been included, to use with any version of the legends.
