Some subjects are too interesting to be left at school! Carry on your love of history at home with Medieval Life - an activity-packed exploration of life in the Middle Ages.
Divided into sections, the book starts with fast facts on topics including castles and knights, running a manor, feudalism, monastic life, and the church; and the book ends with charts of famous medieval people and rulers. Using this information, you can complete the puzzles in the main part of the book, plus there are hands-on activities such as designing your own shield using heraldry, making a "stained glass" window, and playing the medieval game of Fox and Geese. Finally, test your new-found knowledge with the quick quizzes (with answers supplied, but no peeking!). You can keep track of your achievements throughout with a star-chart to fill in every time you finish a page.
