Medieval Unit

My son loves to study about knights, castles, and anything medieval! He loves to dress up and play soldier, knight, name it!  He loves to study about the Middle Ages, and there are really lots of choices when determining what to study. It can be a little overwhelming because there is so much out there. You really have to explore and find what's right for you. Here are some thoughts about the Middle Ages.  

Get Started!

Develop a scope and sequence. This doesn't have to be as complicated as it sounds...basically write down the objectives or a list of things you want to teach. This will guide you in finding activities and crafts. This can be as detailed or general as you choose. Here are some sites with lots of ideas and activities!

Medieval Life- easy to navigate site...your child can explore each section and learn what is would be like growing up in the middle ages. 

Homeschool Share has book lists, free lapbook printables, and more!
