The Medieval Life cross curricular theme has come to an end.

 The entire Medieval display
 Illuminated letters with touches of gold paint.
 The Montessori 9-12 class have been learning about the Medieval Age during the first term.

Our research was cross curricular. We learned about their clothing, foods, houses, astronomy and hand drew maps showing Europe at the time.
We created golden feast plates displaying the very best foods eaten by the nobles.
In English we looked at traveling "quack doctors" and their miracle cures and presented our own miracle cures to the class using persuasive language.

In Mathematics we looked at sacred geometry and created mandalas using geometric shapes.

We researched castles and cathedrals and learnt how their technology grew and influenced other inventions.
