Complete at least four of the projects listed below in your final week of study.
1. Make a timeline of the Middle Ages. Pick two or three events from each unit to add to the time line. You can do a Google search for images of your event, print out the pictures, and glue them to a poster board to make it more interesting. For an idea of how to set up your timeline – take a look at this picture: http://www.tutburycastle.com/images/timeline.jpg Put your timeline on a poster display board and then video tape yourself presenting your timeline to your family or homeschool group. During your presentation, point out the important events that happened along the way and tell which event was your personal favorite.
2. Make a Medieval feast for your family. Many wealthy families in the Middle Ages had feasts that consisted of several courses, but you don’t need to go to such elaborate lengths! Just pick a few delightful dishes and have at it! The following website has an abundance of recipes to choose from.
3. Make a Medieval costume to wear to your feast! (or just for fun!)
4. Watch a jousting demonstration
Make a poster display board about jousting and tournaments and then video tape yourself presenting your poster display to your family or homeschool group.
5. Learn about Medieval reenactments:
