The Tudors - Timeline lesson one
The Tudors represent an important period of change in the history of the United Kingdom. In this lesson, I would like you to create a timeline of your own based on Tudor events.
1. Watch the video which will explain what timelines are and how you create one. Using the Tudor timeline ordering activity, sequence the events in the order they occurred (this can be illustrated in any way you would like).
2. Then, watch the second video based on the Tudors. What do you notice about the rule of King Henry VIII?
3. Lastly, fill the gaps on the activity sheet and research which events took place in which year? If you would like to be creative, you can order the events on a timeline and decorate in your own style.
Remember, spelling, punctuation and presentation is as important as getting the facts ordered correctly.
The Tudors - Reformation lesson two
The United Kingdom was once a catholic country and its head was the Pope, who was, and still is, based in the Rome, Italy.
Henry was impatient to be granted a divorce from his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, so he could marry his second wife, Anne Boleyn. In this lesson, you will understand the reasons why Henry VIII broke with the catholic faith, the Pope and Rome.
Follow the power point. When directed to on the power point slide, watch the video clips, then carry on with the slides.
Finally, look at the problems Henry faced as king, how they could be categorised (grouped) and how he could solve them.
For instance, My tastes are expensive and my new house, Hampton Court Palace, needs to be furnished in a manner fit for a King. I need additional funds
This would be an economic problem and to solve it he could raise more money through taxes.
