Activity Overview

When reading stories in archaic languages, it can be helpful for students to create visuals to help understand events that are being described. Using evidence from the text and making text-based inferences, students will pick one of the battles Beowulf brags about and illustrate it in the form a timeline or sequence.

To provide further differentiation for this activity, students can use the timeline layout in the storyboard creator, create a comic, or use a blank poster layout to create a full image that they then describe.
