Activity Overview


In this activity, students will compare and contrast food preparation and dining in medieval times to present day. Students will use a T-Chart with one side for a medieval feast, and the other for present day.

For example:


Medieval Times

"There were no forks, but napkins were provided. They shared goblets of wine, and between courses the Ewerer appeared with water for them to wash their fingers."


Present Day

We use forks, knives, spoons, and other utensils to eat. If we want to wash our hands we do so in a sink.
