Introduce your students to the Renaissance by stepping them through the major events of the Middle Ages that lead to or impact the coming of the modern age.
Students will examine different images with teacher guiding questions provided and then add the information to a step notes format to show the rise of the Middle Ages and then the decline into the Renaissance period.
A follow up Acrostic Poem activity is included for individual student assessment.
All required materials are provided with this lesson.
Images for analysis on key Middle Ages Events
Step-Notes pages for interactive lecture
Acrostic Poem prompt on RENAISSANCE for wrap-up assessment
Created for use leading into a unit on the Renaissance, and is included in my Renaissance and Reformation Complete Unit.
Would also be a great refresher activity for a European AP class!
