Despotic and brutal at certain moments, and enlightened at others, Peter the Great remains one of the most important figures in Russian history. He came to the throne at the age of ten, and shared power first with his mother and then half-brother, until he finally became Russia's sole ruler at age twenty-four.
This Fill-in-the-Blanks (F.I.B.s) worksheet covers the rule of Peter the Great, and all the major political and social policies that he instituted. Using their textbook and/or the Internet, students will use the clues provided to better understand Peter's three main policy goals: modernizing his country, increasing its territory, and consolidating his own political power.
This worksheet will challenge students' reading, researching, comprehension and analytical skills, as well as their understanding of how one man's vision had such a dramatic impact on Russia's evolution into a major European power.
Perfect as an in-class activity, take-home assignment or review sheet!
