FREEBEE FRIDAY: Class Castle

Castle Why flip through books or show pictures of what medieval castles look like when your class can explore these structures from the inside out by making their own. It won’t be out of granite and oak timbers but the Build A Medieval Castle Web site takes kids through location, materials, shape and how the people lived in these ancient fortresses. As a class, individually or in small groups they can download and print out the castle’s paper parts that are then colored, cut and glued together to create their own citadel. Later, they can have mock battles with paperclips and crumpled up paper.
