Are you studying the Middle Ages or Medieval/Renaissance Times in your history this year? Maybe your children are just fascinated with princesses, knights and dragons. I love finding printables to supplement what we are studying in our homeschool, or to help peak my children’s interest in a specific subject.
Like I have mentioned before, we really enjoy unit studies in our homeschool. We also love to supplement our history spine with things that are not from a textbook. This really helps history to come alive and make learning about a specific time period a memorable experience. I enjoy finding fun printables, copywork, notebooking and coloring pages to accompany what we are learning about.
The Medieval Times is a great time period to find supplements for. These are especially fun to focus on if you have a medieval or renaissance fair coming to your town. It makes for an awesome field trip experience after your unit studies.
