Entertaining and Educational - Political Propaganda
How do you study history? The kids at Angelical Scalliwags do lots of projects and they are now studying the middle ages.
Pope Urban made a speech which inspired many medieval Europeans to follow him in crusades to the holy land. Listening to his speech on youtube, I was shocked by how it seemed to be filled with lies and truths manipulated for personal motivation. Angelical Scalliwags studied the speech, made their own political propaganda posters and had some interesting discussions. This is a very interesting topic to study with older children.
