A look into the Middle Ages

Posted by in Time

In our project week we traveled to the time of the Middle Ages. Firstly, we located the Middle Ages on a timeline. The knights were fascinating us in particular since we learned something about their training and the everyday life of a knight. Moreover, we watched a short movie about the process of building a castle and also what living in a castle during this era meant. Afterwards we built a castle made out of cardboard. Finally, the project days ended with a tasty knight’s meal.
