This lesson on the Crusades includes a thorough and visually-engaging PowerPoint along with a video, guided notes, and interactive notebook option!
The presentation begins with the motivations of why the Crusaders and Pope wanted a Crusade and continues through each of the 4 Crusades. The important aspects of each is explained in simple, easy-to-understand notes. The major effects of the Crusades as well as the Reconquista and Spanish Inquisition are covered as well to give students a well-developed understanding of the Crusades lasting-effects.
A Google Slides option for the presentation is also included!
The download also features both a guided notes worksheet and a cut & fold graphic organizer for students to use for their notes.
There's also a fully-narrated "flipped classroom" video version of the lesson as well! This video is perfect for "flipping" your class, showing in class, posting for absent students, or just watching yourself to prep for the lesson!
This is an excellent resource that will keep all of your students engaged and focused! For a nice companion resource, please see this Crusades Worksheet and Map Activity.
