Near the end of the school year our 5th/6th grade students put on a Medieval Day for the entire school. They researched and planned activities including dancing, food sampling, jousting, catapulting, exhibits and displays and of course, ART!
My 5th/6th grade classes made paper mache knight sculptures starting with a newspaper armature. They added Medieval clothes and weapons to accessorize. Some of the materials we used were cardboard, wood, cloth, leather, raffia, doll hair, yarn and felt.
One of my students who worked quickly was able to make a horse for her knight also. She loves horses and managed to incorporate them into most of her artworks this year.
Pictures and information about life in the Medieval times was displayed.
The students created medieval shoes as part of their research in Social Studies.
Our Kindergarten teachers made this awesome castle door decoration!
Many of my students worked together to create these large Coat of Arms banners.
