My youngest had watched a film on Marie Antoinette and wanted to know more about her, this of course, led on to the French Revolution, which led onto a lapbook. There's nothing wrong with this, it's great, home ed in action, but it was the last week, I was winding down and filing things away ready for the holidays... sigh!
So here it is the fastest printed out and put together lapbook in history!
Most of the information was from here and here.
We learned about the 3 estates, Marie Antoinette, Louis 16th, Napoleon, The Bastille, The Guillotine, The Tennis Court Oath, The French Flag, Voltaire and Rousseau, The Declaration of Man, The New Constitution of France and general French geography.
The printout lapbook flaps came from here and I really can't thank the person enough because we just wouldn't have been able to do this lapbook without her!
Below is a printed out power point presentation of the Lady who started this whole thing off! I took a photo of the front cover only.
Below is a 'made up' diary of someone who attended the beheading of Louis 16th.
