    I will be teaching a lesson about the Magna Carta next week in my tenth grade World Civilization class. I am already planning on having the students work in small groups to create their own lists of rights. Any other ideas?

    Thanks!

    I have a primary source activity using the actual magna carta if you would like it.

    I would love a primary source! I have been emphasizing the use of primary sources throughout the year. I feel like the students are finally beginning to feel confident with reading and interpreting them.

    INTeacher - Thanks for the great website. I definitely want to point out what the issues were for King John as well.

    Megawinn, can you tell me more about your activity? We are going to be studying the Magna Carta soon too.

    Also, Brendan, I will pm you with my email too, if you don't mind.

    I will have fun looking at the website too, INteacher.

    Thanks...

    Here's another great UK history website with awesome worksheets that cover just about every academic level. I don't really understand the grade levels so I check out everything on the topic. The worksheets for the the French Revolution are great.

    Sent it, Mrs. M. The honors activity I sent you would most likely be way to hard for MS, however the CP activity could work out well with modification.

    And thanks, Lynn. I am going to try out that activity with my Honors kids who are a bit ahead.
