This lesson is used to introduce the contenders for the throne of England in 1066 and how this lead up to the Battle of Hastings and the Norman Conquest.

 

The lesson focuses on Harold Godwinson, Harald Hardrada and William, Duke of Normandy and their respective claims to the throne. Students must decide what makes a good leader today, who that might be different to the medieval period and then decide which man should have the throne and why.

 

The lesson contains:

- 2 page worksheet with information and activities.

- A table to complete on the contenders and the validity of their claims.

- 10 slide Presentation covering the information and containing tasks (the PDF is of a PowerPoint and is not editable)

 

The worksheet provides the information to complete the graphic organizer on the claimants. Activities on the presentation include a simple gap fill, class discussion on leadership, speech bubbles for student to act out if you wish and a plenary bingo game to show what they have learned in the lesson.

 

At the end the students must decide who they believe had the strongest claim ot the throne. This is suitable for home schooling and distance learning. Tasks are clearly laid out in order.

 

This lesson can be followed by 'King Harold's Problem: Who will invade first?' - a lesson also in my store!
