Students review Queen Elizabeth 1's life and times by completing a timeline activity and answering 4 questions. There are 20 items for students to place on the timeline spanning her birth to death. Students must classify each item according to a system detailed in the instructions, they have one task to complete for 6 items of their choice, and another task to complete for 3 other items of their choice. All instructions are provided in the handout. There are arrows in the first two lines of the timeline showing students the direction to fill out the pieces in. This could work for a sub and answers are provided where appropriate.
Sample timeline items and questions include:
--removed from the line of succession
--Treaty of Berwick
--the Babbington Plot
--defeats the Spanish Armada
--Act of Uniformity passed
--Elizabethan Poor Law passed
--What do you consider Elizabeth's greatest success and why Would historians agree with you, why or why not?
--If you could give one piece of advice to Elizabeth at any point during her life, what would it be and why? Do you think she would have heeded your advice, why or why not?
***a teacher's note is included in the file describing an alternate way students can complete this activity***
