KS3 Christendom and the Crusades Resources

From the 11th to the 13th century, the Crusades were a group of wars between Christian Europe and Islamic West Asia. The First Crusade was initiated over the fight for Christian pilgrim access to areas thought to be holy land. There were many different crusades thereafter, with a total of nine major crusades. With the First Crusade being driven by religious drivers, subsequent crusades took on more political reasons.

Learn more about the key factors that contributed to the birth of the Crusades, the establishment of the Crusader Kingdoms as a result of the First Crusade, the aims and importance of the First and Second Crusades during the early medieval period, the developments in trade and science brought by the Crusades, and the political, economic, intellectual, and religious impact of the Crusades on Europe with our KS3 resources. You’ll find Student Activities, Lesson Presentation, and Revision Notes ready to download below. KS3 resources are ideally suited for Years 7, 8 and 9, or ages 11-14.
