Yesterday the third graders traveled back in time, waaaaay back in time. This incredible day was filled with crafts, activities and even food from the Medieval time period, which the third graders have been studying this year. Some of the activities included ribbon dancing, climbing the rock wall and juggling scarves. The children also had a "feast" with no forks and no napkins. That was lovely. They ended their day with bartering. Each child brought in a few trinkets with which to trade. They tried to persuade savvy traders with shouts and arm waving. I'm sure the teachers are just exhausted but I know the children had a fantastic day, one they will always remember.
