On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the Wittenburg door church. In two weeks it will be the 500th anniversary of those events. Disagree with his stand or agree, you can’t disagree with how much he changed the world both in the short term and the long term. This week I’m going to be sharing resources, ideas, and more for a Protestant Reformation Unit that you can use in your own homeschool history lesson.
Martin Luther resources for your history lessons
Tomorrow I’m going to have a whole Martin Luther resources post, but today I wanted to share a few friends who have some great posts already out.
- Martin Luther Resources and copywork
- Martin Luther Resources
- Reformation Day resrouces for kids
- Unit Study and Lapbook on Martin Luther
Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation activities
There are a lot of fun activities you can do with the Protestant Reformation, and a lot of history to pack in here, which I’ll admit I don’t have time for in a short week to get done, so I’ll be adding more as I think of them and we complete more activities.
- Make your own 95 theses
- Forerunners of the Protestant Reformation
- Why did Martin Luther’s Protest Work when others didn’t?
- Imitators of Martin Luther
To go with this whole unit I have put together a Reformation Notebooking pages set (including the rubric for the 95 theses assignment, AND a few fun projects) for $2.99.
