Charlemagne, the most famous King from the Early Middle Ages, was a unique character whom we know a lot of personal information about thanks to his long reign and loyal aides. I felt a general overview of this reign lacked the fun details that make learning memorable and engaging. I created this project to address that. Students are "tricked" into using a primary source about Charlemagne in order to create a modern take on the man using their modern technology. It brings Charlemagne to life and students create hilarious and unique products. Really a highlight of the unit.
I included a template for how I grade it.
