A few years ago, I discovered Historian Lucy Worsley and loved how she narrated history on top of getting into character for a few of her series! The first series I found from her was Heroines, Housewives and Harlots and the History of the Home on YouTube. Unfortunately you can't get Heroines, Housewives, and Harlots on YouTube any more.
Recently, PBS discovered this gem of a historian and started airing her documentaries. The first documentary PBS aired was the Six Wives of Henry VIII. Recently, PBS aired Royal Myths and Secrets and so I came up with questions for that series. If any teacher needs a video for a sub in history class, either in the theme of the day or something fun, I would highly recommend looking into Lucy Worsley!
The first episode of the series is about Elizabeth I and focuses on the myths that came out of the Spanish Armada. The episode kicks off with Elizabeth's imprisonment and how Queen Mary treated her and how Philip freed her because he didn't want the French to expand their influence. Then when Elizabeth becomes queen, he tries to persuade her to marry him or at least dump the Protestant faith. Then Worsley moves onto the factors that lead to the Spanish Armada and reveals that not everything is at it seems.
You can use this series as lecture supplement for a history class.
You can highlight, copy, and paste the questions into a Word, GoogleDoc or Google Classroom document for use in school or home school. Format it the way you want to. All questions after formatting should fit onto one page.
You can find the link to the YouTube video here.
