Freshmen Travel Back in Time for Medieval Celebrations in World History

Mrs. Kern and Mrs. Orrico’s world history classes celebrated the winter season with traditional medieval feasts. Before classes ended for Christmas breaks, each class set up the desks in their classroom in the formation of a long table. Students were invited to enjoy a lavish meal and take part in lively conversation, all while presenting research regarding a figure from medieval times. 
In order to participate in the feasts, each student had to research a specific medieval figure and create a presentation to introduce their figure to the class. On the day of the feast, students enthusiastically dressed in character to share their slides and interact with the other figures. Many students also opted to bring in treats that represented their researched character. 
Among the medieval figures students chose were popes, saints, kings, queens, explorers, and military personnel, such as Saint Thomas Becket and Pope Urban II. Fit with stoles, crowns, head gear, and medieval garb, students were also required to talk to their peers as if they were their figures. This engaging project allowed students to learn more about the historical figures that affected medieval times and also use their historical knowledge to converse during their medieval feast.
