I am looking for a book that takes place in Medieval Times to read with my on-level reading group (4th grade). Any suggestions?

I'm not sure of the level, but what about Crispin by Avi.

I read it a number of years ago, and it really brought to life how dismal life was for people, especially non-royalty. Can't remember the reading level though.

Have you thought about Castle in the Attic? It begins with today's time, but then goes to the Middle Ages. I LOVE this book, as do my fourth graders. I use it as a whole class book. I have also read aloud The Whipping Boy, which my kiddos find very funny.

Hope this helps!!

Max, Me and the Time Machine.
The boys find a time machine and travel back to Medieval times. The main character lands in the body of a brave, strong knight in a jousting contest, and his friend ends up in his.......horse! (They can talk to each other!)
It is mostly character driven, but does have Medieval times manners, a jousting contest, hunting with falcons, a secret lab, a princess ect. My students love this book. There is a lot of humor. I supplement with activities such as making their own coat of arms, labling parts of the armor and parts of a castle.

Whipping Boy is a great read. It is very witty and funny.

is a very short novel that can be read by 4th graders independently. I also like 'The Whipping Boy'. There must be more . . . still thinking.

I second Crispin, but its long.

The Door in the Wall is shorter, and i love the Midwife's Apprentice also short with a female lead.

Catherine, Called Birdy by Karen Cushman is a funny book as well. It is told in some diary form from Catherine's point of view
