We are studying the medieval era right now—the times of knights and samurai! I remember when I was in seventh grade making a sugar cube castle, so I thought it would be fun to let the kids try their hands at the same activity. Sugar cubes aren’t as easy to find these days, but we ended up with more than enough.
I have some pictures to share from our schooling in our new place.
Madi’s Castle—she says she wants to make another one, too!
Max’s Castle—isn’t it great? It has a fountain/well inside.
Castle-making with a heater placed to warm cold feet.
Busy hands for happy ears.
