What is included in the In Freedom's Causee Unit Study?

Student Unit Study

The student unit study pages are on page 4 to 33 and provide chapter-by-chapter activities for the student. These include:
  • Reading comprehension questions
  • Tracking the action plot
  • Background historical information
  • Word studies & Idiom Studies

Answer Key

The answer key includes all of the answers to the questions on the student pages. There are also boxes with additional information and teaching ideas.


Maps

Color Map of the Battle of Stirling Bridge Color Map of the Battle of Falkirk

Four different maps help the readers identify the understand the geography. These include:
  • Map of Great Britain
  • Map of Scotland with towns from all the scenes in the book identified
  • Map of the Battle of Stirling Bridge (color and black and white copy)
  • Map of Falkirk Battle (color and black and white)
The maps of William Wallace and Robert Bruce alone are worth the price of the entire unit study. Ideas for using the maps with two of Wallace's most famous battles are also included.


Vocabulary Bookmarks

In Freedoms Cause Vocabulary Bookmarks

We have included chapter-by-chapter vocabulary lists with definitions. These vocabulary words are included as bookmarks so students can follow along with the defintions of unfamiliar words as they read.

Our list of the vocabulary words for the first five chapters of In Freedom's Cause show how we provide sequencing of select word families.


Hands On Activities

We provide a chart listing the different activities in the corresponding chapters. Some of these include:
  • Scottish sword dance
  • Making pine torches
  • Shrove Tuesday pancakes

Multi-Media

To supplement your reading of the book, audio and visual resources about Wallace and Bruce are listed in the In Freedom's Cause Unity Study.

Short & medium-length Internet videos of battles are referenced. Videos with background information are also listed with appropriate chapters.

You can listen to the dramatic audio of In Freedom's Cause (great for a long car trip.)

Two full-feature movies are referenced, though historical inaccuracies and graphic content are objectionable.

Comparison of William Wallace and Robin Hood

Use the fun group activity to compare Robin Hood vs William Wallace. This project can be done by an individual, class, or small group.





Timeline

William Walllace and Robert Bruce Timeline



Your study of the Scottish Wars of Independence will be complete with the timeline of William Wallace and Robert Bruce.

Students can record the dates as they read the book, or they can use the timeline after completing the book to compare events.

Alternatively, they can add the events on a chart with the dates listed. Our timeline includes exact dates for some events that are mentioned in the book but not specifically dated by Henty.
