You all know I like my hands on learning, especially in our history lessons, and I frequently spend a long time getting together materials and coming up with ideas for our projects. This time for our middle ages unit study I won’t have to.
My plan this summer is to have a light school schedule (one hour a day), mainly to keep the kids from driving me crazy.
It’s over 300 pages of awesomeness with the Time Capsule England, with another couple hundred pages of supplementary materials.
Projects I’m excited to do for the Middle Ages Unit Study
How to take pictures. Princess has decided she wants to start a blog, and has taken lots of pictures recently.
Pictures that look like this. I’m deleting them by the dozens.
Medieval Games (that picture is obviously not one of them, but it was a convenient picture), I always find games interesting to see how they’ve changed from then to now.
Recipes, because that won’t go horribly wrong at all.
Making a waddle and daub wall. That looks really interesting and I hadn’t even thought of trying it.
Studying artwork. I loved doing that in my history classes in high school, and we’ve barely touched on it so far with my kids.
There’s another cloud in a bottle experiment. Maybe this one will work for us.
I’d wait and tell you about it when we were doing it, but I figure some of you are in the middle of studying middle ages right now, and might want to know about it too.
Buying Middle Ages Unit Study
You can buy the entire thing over at Time Capsule England (there’s a sample to try out if you’re curious) or buy a print copy on Amazon: Time Capsule: Medieval England: You Are There (Volume 1).
