Lesson 1 - End of an empire

WALT: Investigate how Cleopatra is remembered

Ra Ra Cleopatra

In this lesson we're going to learn all about Cleopatra. She was the last great Egyptian pharaoh and people have very mixed opinions about her. Through the years she's been portrayed as a hero and as a villain. Today I want you to read some different sources, learn about her life and then make up your own mind. 


Start by looking at the powerpoint presentation. Once you've read all about Cleopatra's life, have a look at the different resources to learn more about her. I really enjoyed the Horrible Histories special and the reading comprehension. 


Once you have learned enough, use the task sheet or create your own with some plain paper to tell us what you think about this memorable ruler.
