This was the time of kings, queens, knights, castles, and the feudal system. What was it really like living during this era? We shall visit castle and village life and living in a town. The student-centered lessons teach students to analyze the key the concepts of geography, economy, and social classes of this time. Students will examine the manors and draw conclusions about land use. Our tour also takes us to cathedrals and monasteries to view the gargoyles, stain glass windows, and rich art of the time. Each student will learn how to make their own unique family coat of arms and participate in a Middle Ages dinner party.
Homework: maximum of one hour per week
