Product Description
This resource includes a list of key terms and a guided (or independent) reading activity about the barbarian invasions and the fall of Rome. It looks at the reasons for the invasions briefly and the impact the fall of the Western Roman Empire had on everyday life in the Middle Ages. There are a mixture of questions, including a higher order question that requires students to explain their views on whether this time period should be considered a 'dark' age. There is also a map activity and a variety of questions to help students to develop and demonstrate student understanding.

This would be good for an early lesson on the Middle Ages, particularly when paired with extracts from the History Channel documentary on the Dark Ages (available on YouTube). This would also be good for home-schooled children.


If you're looking for more resources for Medieval Europe try my exam on The Black Death. It is fully editable and contains both knowledge-based and skills based questions.
