Breaking news


This just in

This just in…

  • Another family has come and invaded your home.

  • They’ve taken everything that belongs to you. Your house, your room, your belongings!

  • You still have to live in your home but your entire family lives in one room and you can’t leave your house freely- the group that has invaded blocks your house and you can only leave at certain times during the day

What s going on

What’s going on?

  • Think quietly: How does this make you feel? What could have possibly made this happen?

It’s happening RIGHT NOW!

  • In a part of Ukraine- in the Ukrainian peninsula called Crimea

This also happened

This also happened…

  • In Medieval Europe, during an event called the Crusades.

  • In this event, land belonging to religious groups was conquered and taken over in wars that lasted for years.

  • We will learn more about that tomorrow

Crimea and the crusades

Crimea and the Crusades

  • During the Middle Ages, the Crusades happened as a result of conflict over land and culture. Although this is a past problem, the Crimeans are experiencing the same issue today as Russian forces have invaded and taken over their territory because of cultural conflicts. Students, acting as the Crimean people, will develop a plan to make peaceful contact with the Russian government and army and reclaim their borders.

  • The civilizations in the Middle Ages fought to take back their land

How can we, as Crimeans, develop a plan to reclaim our land?
