Yesterday we went on a trip with all of the grade 4's in our school. The weather was absolutely perfect - sunny and cool! We went to 'Blades of Glory'. It is a program that teaches the children about the Medieval Times. This was my second time going and the students loved it! It is very well organized. They rotate through centres: learning about/petting a falcon, making chain mail, watching a horse practise jousting, trying on armour, learning about/holding instruments from that era, learning about/holding weapons/trying out a trebuchet (I got to do that), and learning about methods of torture/punishment. Here's a photo of one of my little darlings in the stocks.
