Product Description:

Accompany Lord Kevin to his newly-acquired lands in northwest Wales. The rebellious Welsh do not recognize the authority of the English king, so a castle will be necessary to stake his claim on the land. A Caldecott Honor book.

From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.

We LOVE David Macauley's books! We used "Pyramid" and "City" during our study of Ancient History last year and now we're using "Castle" and "Cathedral" this year to accompany our study of the Middle Ages These books really bring the "process" of history-making to life You get to see the way things were done the way things were made AND learn the "why" behind the "how" My entire family loves to read through these again and again! Rainbow Resource's discounted prices make these fine titles easy to add to our studies too!
