This unit is full of stories of battles and conquests, knights and chivalry, kings and queens, hardworking serfs and freemen, zealous beliefs and passionate calls for freedom, and so much more! This unit moves chronologically throughout the Middle Ages to show what life was like during this time period, what was happening in the rest of the world, and the big picture story of the ever-changing landscape and identity of Europe.
You will have opportunities to forge your own weapons; learn about catapults, castles, and armor; design your own family coat of arms: work with roman numerals; perform a trajectory experiment and a vision test; and end the unit with preserving your legacy in a time capsule. With daily hands-on activities and rich discussions, an adventure awaits you.
The writing project: Your writing project for this unit is to write your own newspaper, called the Medieval Times (or come up with your own name!). You will be learning how to write a comic, advertisement, breaking news report, and letter to the editor—which you could keep historical (writing about the life and times of the Middle Ages) or write about current events and make your own family paper that will stand the test of time.
The Bible focus: Every day ends with a family devotional, comparing the kingdoms of men to the kingdom of God. This goes along with your recitation passage—the Lord’s Prayer—as well as your daily Bible page. As you pray for God’s kingdom to come and His will to be done, you will gain a greater understanding of what that means and what part you have to play.
