Being a knight in the Middle Ages wasn't as fun as you might think. Knights and jousts, castles and moats, the bubonic plague, and the Crusades - this book covers it all. Easy-to-read, anecdotal narratives keep students engaged, and the cross-curricular activities and puzzles that follow each chapter enhance language arts, math, and critical-thinking skills. Grades 6-8. Illustrated. Good Year Books. 96 pages. Eleven fascinating historical articles (four or five pages long, and reproducible for easy distribution) summarize main points and deliver colorful, memorable details about history. Following each illustrated article, three or four reproducible worksheets test comprehension and spark deeper engagement through creative writing, arts and crafts projects, research starters, critical thinking questions, what-if scenarios, and other activities. Grades 48. Suggested readings. Answer keys.
