This highly-engaging Martin Luther activity presents a fun way to interact with primary sources at the start of the Reformation! Students analyze 6 of Martin Luther's 95 theses that were nailed to the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany in 1517!
Students analyze 6 of Martin Luther's 95 Theses, translate them into their own words, then "tweet" out the information as if Martin Luther lived today! Students are bound by the 160 character limit, are encouraged to use creative hashtags (#hashtags), and will make up names to tweet at (@) people!
Enjoy this exciting way to bring the Protestant Reformation to life!
