This product is a fun way for students to learn about Knights in the Middle Ages. Students use library resources and the internet to research information about life as a knight and use the information to create their own knight identity and write a resume for a position on The Crusades. The task requires students to find information about:
- Names in the Middle Ages
- Coats of Arms and clothing
- Training to become a knight
- Weapons and Armour
- The Code of Chivalry
There is a marking guide included.
My students have been really engaged in this task and completed work of a high quality.
This task meets Australian Curriculum Year 8 History outcomes, in particular ACDSEH008 [The way of life in Medieval Europe (social, cultural, economic and political features) and the roles and relationships of different groups in society ],
