This lesson involves analysis of artwork to learn about people involved in the Rise of Russia. People discussed include Ivan the Terrible, Ivan the Great, Queen Olga, and Stalin. The lesson includes 5 different artwork/reading analysis assignments so that students will have different topics.
My 9th/10th/11th grade World History students loved this assignment. They found the Princess Olga story especially interesting and all wanted to learn more about the subject. It was a great introduction to the Rise of Russia topic.
