We have walked along the medieval time in our country with the VISIGOTHS, AL ANDALUS and THE CHRISTIAN KINGDOMS. We are going to review a bit all of it with a new THINKING ROUTINE: THE HOT WORDS. What is a HOT WORD? It is a word that can help you to remember lot of things about a topic. So let's think during a minute about three hot words about each one of the topics we have learnt during this unit.
Now let's watch a video to introduce what happened in Spain after 1492: THE SPANISH EMPIRE. At the end of the video you should be able to answer these questions:
- Which was one of the conquerors?
- Which continent was the biggest part of the Spanish Empire in?
- Which metal was important during this period?
SPAIN AFTER 1492
Columbus reached America in 1492.
In this year also the Catholic Monarchs unified the kingdoms of Spain.
Charles I and Philip II acquired new possesion during the 16th century.
In 18th Century the kings stablished ABSOLUTE MONARCHY.
THE TERRITORIES OF THE SPANISH EMPIRE.
Between 16th and 19th century Spain has possesions in every part of the world: Canary Islands, America, Philippes in Asia and several teritorritories in Norh Africa. The kings also inherited territores in central an southern Europe.
By the end of 19th century most of these possessions no longer belonged to Spain.
WRITERS AND ARTISTS
In the 16th and 17th centuries was a great century for art and literature in Spain: THE GOLDEN AGE.
Literature: Miguel de Cervantes wrote El quijote. Famous poets like Quevedo and Góngora. Lope de Vega and Calderón de la Barca wrote many plays.
Paintings: Diego Velazquez was one of the famous painters of this time.

We have been talking about: VISIGOTHS and about AL ANDALUS. We are going to review how are you learning with a THINKING ROUTINE: THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS. Just to remind you:
- GREEN: what you have already learnt.
- ORANGE: what you are trying to improve or going deeper.
- RED: what you haven't learn at all.
Let's have a look about a famous Spanish TV serie, at the end of the video you will answer some questions:
- Who were the kings when they got Granada?
- Were there any kind of war or battle?
THE CHRISTIAN RECONQUEST
Around year 1000 Al Andalus weakened and broke up into TAIFA.
Christian Kingdoms expanded.
The Christian Reconques was completed in 1492, when the Caholic Monarchs conquered Granada.
THE CHRISTIAN KINGDOMS
Around 1230 the Christian Territory was divided into:
- The Kingdom of Navarre included Navarre and part of la Rioja.
- The Crown of Aragon included the Kingdom of Aragon, Valencia and Majorca with the Catalonian Counties.
- The Crown of Castile included the Kingdom of Castile and the Kingdom of Leon. Later will include Andalusia.
- Portugal was an independent kingdom.
In 1479 Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon, married and united the Crown of Aragon and Castile. They were known as Catholic Monarchs.
THE KINGDOM OF GRANADA.
It was the last Taifa Kingdom
(Granada, Malaga and Almeria)
It was weakened by internal disputes. Finally it was conquered by the Catholic Monarchs.

Today we are going to work with a new THINKING ROUTINE. It is called THE MISTERY QUESTION. You have to think on what we learnt the last lesson: THE MIDDLE AGES. Once you have in mind you have to create a question that maybe one of your partners could not understand. The teacher will try to answer and explain better that points.
Once we have solved all the questions and everything is clear we are going to watch a video to learn a bit more about AL-ANDALUS. Pay attention because at the end of the video you have to answer the following question:
- Where did the first Muslim enter through to start the conquest of Spain?
MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS.
In 711A.D. Muslims from northern Africa invaded Visigothic Spain.
Hispania was called Al-Andalus.
Muslims brought their customs, laws and religion.
The highest authority was the CALIPH and the religion was ISLAM
They lived in cities. They were merchants and craftsmen.
Christians live in the country in the north of Península, the highest authority was the KING. They were farmers.
The peninsula was occupied by Muslims for almost eight hundred years.
They lived in walled cities on hills.
They built palaces and Mosques.
They most important city was Córdoba the capital.
THE CHRISTIAN KINGDOMS.
Muslims occupied the south, but there were indepedent Christian Kingdoms in the pas in the north like: Kingdom of Asturias, later the kingdom of Leon.
At the end of the period the KINGDOm OF CASTILE was formed.
LET'S PLAY AND CONTINUE LEARNING.

Let's start a new topic of Science. As always we will start with a THINKING ROUTINE. The thinking routine is THINK - PAIR - SHARE. We are going to review what we have learnt about history so:
- THINK: about what we have learn about prehistory, Iberians and Romans and try to represent it on your notebook on a timeline.
- PAIR: check it with your partner and complete it in case you need.
- SHARE: We will try to complete one timeline with all your ideas.
Let's have a look to this video and answer this questions:
- What shape was the visigothic church?
- Can you describe a bit how the floor of the church was?
THE INVASION OF GERMANIC TRIBES
In 409 A.D. the Vandals invaded Spain.
The Visigoths established a kingdom on the Iberian Peninsula.
The Visigoths crossed the Pyrenees went to the center of Hispania. They established Toledo as their capital.
Later they conquered the places occupied by the Germanic Tribes.
They changed their language, religion and laws to unify their new kingdom. They adopted the Hispano-Roman culture and converted to Christianity. They based on Roman law.
They lived in villages. They used land for agriculture and livestock farming. They were expert metalworkers.
The Visigothic kingdom ended after the Muslim invasion in 711 AD.

Utilizando las TIC para repasar, una vez terminada la unidad sobre LA PREHISTORIA Y LA EDAD ANTIGUA: la Prehistoria, la Península Iberica en los tiempos Prerromanos, y la "Hispania" Romana, trabajamos como siempre, realizamos nuestro mapa conceptual con Popplet.
Después los alumnos graban su explicación con la aplicación Screencast-O-Matic.
Publican su entrada en su Portfolio Personal creado dentro de los blogs personales de Kidblog.
Y nos lo envían para poder corregirlo a través de la red social educativa de Edmodo.
Estos son los trabajos de los alumnos de esta unidad.
