SKU: H56IL409003

Why were Spain and England enemies? In this lesson, children learn about the tensions between these two countries during the Elizabethan era, and the events that led up to King Philip II’s decision to invade England. As a class, they will find out about the attack and defeat of the Spanish Armada. In their independent activities, children put the main events in chronological order and mark important locations on a map. Alternatively, they work in small groups to create a modern day ‘talk show’ where the key characters in the events are questioned about the causes, events and outcomes of the attack.
