Product Description
This booklet contains 71 pages of questions, mind maps, timelines and tables for your students to complete. It is designed to aid your students' understanding of a complex series of events in England. The Wars of the Roses saw a civil war between the Lancastrians and the Yorkists in late Medieval England ending with the succession of Henry VII in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth Field. He was to be the founder of the famous Tudor Dynasty that contained Henry VIII and Elizabeth III. This was a very turbulent time in English history that is still of interest today – just look what happened last year when they finally found the body of King Richard III under a car park in Leicester!

This book covers the period 1450 - 1509. It has detailed questions and tasks on the following areas:

- The Causes of the Wars of the Roses.
- The reign of King Henry VI.
- The reign of King Edward IV.
- The reign and downfall of King Richard III.
- The end of the Wars of the Roses.
- The succession of Henry Tudor as King Henry VII.
- The reign of King Henry VII.

Check out the preview to see some of the kinds of tasks the booklet contains. Students have to complete the information and evaluate the success of particular monarchs with reference to the ideals of Kingship at the time.

The booklet should be completed using class notes, textbooks and the Internet in students’ own time, but they have also been very successfully used in lesson time as actual class tasks.

I use this with my A Level Students (OCR exam board) in England but the content is applicable to anyone studying this period of history.

I also have other revision booklets available in similar formats but on different topics if you are interested:
