AROUND THE CAMPUS

MEDIEVAL DAY IN 6TH GRADE

On Monday, 6th grade concluded their history curriculum with a Medieval day. This day included an authentic feast, character role play, and competitive tournament games. The students were given the option to dress as the Medieval character they chose and were required to create a homemade prop that they used during the day. Each of these roles were represented: King, Queen, Princess, Knight, Noblewoman, Archer, Jester, and Minstrel. It was a merry day filled with feasting and sport!
