Medieval Unit for Third Grade

Hi all -

I'm making plans to teach a unit on Medieval or Middle Ages later this year with my third graders. I have some general ideas of what I can do with this topic, but was wondering if anyone out there had any great ideas out there that you would be willing to share!! So far I'm thinking I would like to cover the topics of Castles and Medieval Life as well as maybe making a Coat of Arms, but would love to hear what you all think!

There is a great Magic Tree House book (with a non-fiction guide to accompany it, I believe) that you could use! That will lend itself to lots of great ideas!

of our grade 4 program here in Ontario, Canada.

I did illuminations with them which turned out to be awesome. we did coat of arms, I'm trying to think what else... it's all in a box...

oh ya... we did papier mache gargoyles... they were soooo cool!

We also do a large Medieval Time unit. We make really cool stained glass windows. I make copies of a rose window design onto overhead sheets, then the students color them with colored Sharpie markers. Then they cut out what looks like the from of a church.
We also do illuminations and portriats with tinfoil. You cover a piece of cardboard (anysize) with aluminum foil. then have the students trace a picture of a knight, horse or castle with a ball point pen.

Where do you teach?? I'm in Florida. We are lucky we live close enough to Medieval Times (a dinner show), that we can go for a field trip. The kids love it.
