This is a note-taking lesson about how Henry VIII becomes King. If you do a backstory, you understand that there were a lot of things that had to happen just so-so for Henry to even be on the throne. This walks them through that. My students liked the PowerPoint and me telling them the story through it while they colored and took down the important information. There are a lot of shock and "OMG" factors for the kids to listen to and it really keeps their attention.
You go from beginning, Catherine and Owen Tudor, to end, Elizabeth coming to power.
