Background comes to life in this interactive guide to the Middle Ages, which explores the fascinating period leading up to the Renaissance— such as siege warfare, markets and fairs, medieval medicine, and the feudal system— by way of quite a few hands-on activities. With little adult supervision and typical household objects, children can experience the Middle Ages firsthand by participating in far much more than 30 projects— such as creating a marshmallow cannon, a reliquary, or juggling sticks. Recipes and directions for making a medieval feast fit for a king are included, providing kids with an opportunity to step into character and sample traditional fare such as pokerounce, potage, and (nonalcoholic) mead. From monastic life and castle living to the Crusades along employing the Plague, each section provides a vivid glimpse into the daily life of medieval Europeans and ends using a single or a lot more fun activities.
