This primary source analysis lesson on Charlemagne is perfect for your Middle Ages unit in World History!
The activity includes 8 primary sources excerpts from a 1,200-year-old biography of the "King of the Franks" that can be easily understood by your students. Each helps students understand about Charlemagne's life and personality so they can analyze him as a leader.
A graphic organizer page is included for students to use with the sources along with a worksheet of analysis questions. Students reflect on his leadership ability and compare that to a political leader of today.
A lesson plan is included detailing how to use the sources at stations or other options. It also includes suggested videos, a warm up, additional online sources, and more.
A complete editable Google Doc version is also included for use in Google Classroom and Distance Learning!
This activity pairs perfectly with my Charlemagne and Medieval Europe Flipped Classroom Lesson. Both resources can also be downloaded as part of my Middle Ages Unit Bundle!
