This is the perfect lesson to teach students about the Battle of Hastings and William the Conqueror. This lesson includes exciting bell work with a real life connection, a state objective, a lesson about the Battle of Hastings and William the Conqueror, and 2 final assessments. After the lesson, students will read an article and complete a graphic organizer about the Battle of Hastings and William the Conqueror. Once the reading and graphic organizers are complete, students will create a summary tree where they explain the significance of all they have learned. Lastly, there is an exit ticket with 4 questions. The reading article, graphic organizer, and final activity slides are ALL included in the PowerPoint. This is an amazing deal! I used this lesson for a teacher evaluation and received very high scores. You will love it!
