I have tried my best to find suitable replacements, but in some cases there were no videos on the topic in question at all so if your printable directed you to a resource here and it is not listed, the resource has been removed.

Complete at least four of the projects listed below in your final week of study.
1. Make a timeline of the Middle Ages. Pick two or three events from each unit to add to the time line. You can do a Google search for images of your event, print out the pictures, and glue them to a poster board to make it more interesting. For an idea of how to set up your timeline – take a look at this picture: http://www.tutburycastle.com/images/timeline.jpg Put your timeline on a poster display board and then video tape yourself presenting your timeline to your family or homeschool group. During your presentation, point out the important events that happened along the way and tell which event was your personal favorite.

3. Make a Medieval costume to wear to your feast! (or just for fun!)

Make a poster display board about jousting and tournaments and then video tape yourself presenting your poster display to your family or homeschool group.
