Activity Overview


A Medieval Feast mentions the Royal Crest being embroidered on the King’s chair. A fun activity could be to have your students create their own family crest using the storyboard art. Students can research what the symbols and colors meant during the Middle Ages and design their own. For an extra challenge, teachers can have students write a description of what each symbol means in their life.
