We investigate a queen who wore a large ship in her hair, meet a king who made tables and we learn history from musicals!
Wanna be Marie Antoinette? Get your chocolate chef to make you a hot chocolate, shove a two-foot-long ship in your hair and tell everyone who can’t afford bread to eat cake!
(And, without even trying, you’ll learn all about ‘cause’ and ‘consequence’.)
You’ll also hear a trailer for Mark Selleck’s podcast series, Casting Through Ancient Greece, which is aimed at the biggest kids – adults!
Here are 6 questions to see how well you were listening:
- When did the French Revolution begin?
- What was the first building the revolutionaries attacked?
- Why did people hate Marie Antoinette?
- What caused the French Revolution? Why did it happen?
- What were some consequences of the French Revolution?
- During those revolutionary years of 1789-1799, France also went to war against Austria: true or false?
