We made this abstract time line (no dates yet, we will add more notes & details as we go) with our favorite set of stamps while enjoying clips off of youtube and BBC KS3, some serious, some not, all relating to life in Europe during the Middle Ages.
We plan to make more and string them together with the other notes/art/guides we use to create a big Middle Ages poster or foldable book.
Boo doesn't like the pressure of keeping all the names straight so we crafted a little Feudal System totem pole to help remind her who's who and where they fit in. I am pretty sure we will need one for the Kings & Queens too!
