Storyboard Text

  • Joan Of Arc
  • Hi, I'm Joan of Arc! I led the French into battle during the 100 years war!
  • 100 Years War
  • Magna Carta
  • I signed the Magna Carta to restore peace!
  • Our kingdom is grateful, my king.
  • And we thank you your majesty, King John.
  • Crispin asks Bear, "Hi, Bear. Did you hear of the 17 year old peasant girl that led the French into battle?" Bear tells Crispin, "Why, Crispin, yes. She showed nationalism doing what she did. She was a brave soul, but I cannot seem to remember her name." Crispin says, "I'm pretty sure it was Joan of Arc...right Bear?" Bear laughs and says, "Yes, that was her name. She was involved in the 100 years war, was she not?" Crispin replies, "Yes, she was greatly, Bear...Let's talk about the 100 years war then!"
  • King John
  • Hello loyal subject. I'm King John and I signed the Magna Carta to restore peace to my kingdom!
  • Bear states, "The 100 years war brought us together, did it not Crispin?" Crispin says, "I believe it did, Bear. Again, Joan of Arc led the French into battle. But, there was a problem with their was too heavy to fight in." Bear chuckles and says, "I remember now, yes. The armor set them back, but what's worse it that they used crossbows!" Crispin says, " But, we, the English, used longbows and light armor! And the result of that is-" Bear jumped in, "We won the war!" Crispin says, "Exactly!"
  • Crime and Punishment
  • Court Trial: Is The Baron Innocent or Guilty???
  • Bear asks Crispin, "Have you heard of the Magna Carta, Crispin?" Crispin states, "Yes, the Magna Carta is a legal document that was created in 1215. King John had to sign it to ensure he would stay king. By signing though, he promised to observe common law and follow traditional rights with the nobles and the Church." Bear says back, "Wow Crispin! The Magna Carta is what we get our crime and punishment laws from... no free man can be jailed." Crispin says, "Right. What about King John?"
  • Black Death
  • Bear laughs, "King John was Henry II son. He inherited the crown in May of 1199 and died in 1216 of dysentery." Crispin says, "Henry II left no land to John, so his nick-name was John Lackland. King John was involved in the creation of the Magna Carta." Bear says, "But he was also infuriated at the fact the barons rebelled against their leader and at first did not want to sign. He eventually did, to bring peace to the kingdom." Crispin smiles, "King John is a true king for caring about his people by signing!"
  • Bear says, "England had some strict laws about crime and punishment. Including, you must have a court trial before being accused of a crime." Crispin replies, "You also had to try the case before a royal judge, too." Bear says, "Our laws come from these laws, so they are important to us." Crispin, "But, when King Edward created the Model Parliament, it had all of these laws included. The Model Parliament is similar to Congress in the United States of America." Bear says, "Intriguing, Crispin!"
  • Bear says, "Crispin, do you remember our conversation on how I ran up to Scotland?" Crispin says, "Yes, Bear. The cause was the Black Death. You would get these bubos on your skin that are black and blue and the parasite that caused them is inside you, and then, would kill you." Bear says, "Yes, Crispin. The fleas on rats and the unsanitary conditions started the plague even though the English blamed the Jews." Crispin laughs, "You sure know your stuff Bear!" Bear says, "You too, Crispin!"
