Life in the Middle Ages (3rd-12th grade)What was life like in Medieval Europe? Mary Day uses replica hands-on items and participatory activities to provide students with a glimpse of life and death in the Middle Ages. Students will learn what they could expect life to have been like for them and what legacies are still with us today, i.e. visual literacy, chivalric/core values, protective clothing, etc. The 2008 Newberry Award winning book, Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village, provides a good introduction or follow-up to her workshop. Teachers may request a focus on specific topics, including food, mathematics, language, crusades, heraldry, knighthood, and castle construction.
