This past year, I brought back a fun project for my students to work on - the Medieval Shield!
My students get to design their own Medieval Shield, complete with symbols that symbolize who THEY are. I tie it into the Medieval unit, which is about two chapters in our social studies books.... It works nicely with the Feudal System and Knights.
I'll tell you one thing, students love to talk about their favorite topic - THEMSELVES.
The shield has six openings, so I have my students pick six symbols. They have a rough draft shield to sketch their symbols on first and plan out their shield before I give them the construction paper cut out.
