In our adventures in project based homeschooling medieval times is one of those themes/projects we revisit often; each time adding a new layer to the depth of knowledge about how the society worked, the role of knights, kings, and other members of the communities, the food they ate, why they went to war, and the weapons and tactics they used. This time around the element of magic has been thrown into the mix and a study of wizards, potions, and spells has been added.
My little man created a Lego castle to play out some fun and interesting "scenarios" with all of these players. It has since gone through even more "upgrades" since these photos were taken but he really wanted me to share it here on the blog!
My favorite part, of course, is the yellow flowered herb garden! He was thinking of his mama when he added that lovely little corner of the castle!
