Under the guidance of their Social Studies teacher, Theresa Westgate, they finished their unit with a performance that demonstrated what life was like during the Medieval Times.
Students began the performance with a slideshow of the feudalism pyramid system that informed the audience about the role of Kings, Knights, Nobel men and women, Monks, Nuns, and Peasants.
Students performed 2 skits, involving jesters, the reenactment of a tournament, a dance, and a song and recorder performance supported by their music teacher, Carol Cronce. Two knights explained the purpose of, and materials used to make armor.
Immediately following the performance was a feast that fed over 150 people who attended the event. The high school cafeteria was decorated with rose windows and illuminated letter art work that students created during art class with support from their art teacher, Christie Keeney. Medieval projects and supporting paragraphs were on display. Prior to the feast, students organized several bake sales that allowed them to earn enough money to purchase 5 turkeys, paper goods, salad dressing, and cider for the feast. All other food was prepared by families that participated in the meal. Students also worked hard to braid and bake 40 loaves of bread, 20 of which were donated to the Hartland Area Food Shelf!
