Middle Ages Unit Study
Week 18: We made castles from paper and cardboard.
Life in a medieval castle was not all fairy tale, fun and games. Castles were military fortresses that housed the lord and his family, soldiers and servants. During war times they were flooded with townspeople trying to escape danger.
After learning about castles, and castle life, we created paper/cardboard castles. The activity came from the Storm the Castle website where the free printouts can be downloaded.

All of the castle photos above were taken at the Marksburg Castle near Koblenz, Germany which is a fantastic day trip from Ramstein.
