Past-time with good company, an overview of medieval life divided into three parts with weapons and armor, medieval clothing, and medieval dance forming the core of each part. Students participate in wearing medieval armor, wearing medieval clothing , and learning a medieval dance. program reinforces concepts of chivalry and Honor. The program supports both History (Social Studies) and English (Reading). Teacher study questions available on our web site. Please note: that this program involves bringing real medieval weapons into the school,with the change in times and schools these past few years we wish to remind teachers and administrators that real armor and weapons are part of the program. The student who fights a dual with our staff member does so with a padded plastic weapon.
