The End of the Middle Ages and Our Medieval Feast, 2015

The End of the Middle Ages

  • The Hundred Years war
  • civil wars
  • peasant revolts
  • disease and plague
  • famine
  • trouble in the church
Base on the information you have learned this year, write a short puppet show script that brings to life some aspect of the Middle Ages.  Make puppets for the script. Practice and perform your show for an audience.
